Injuries Among the Elderly in Light of their Health Condition | ISAC

Collaboration between ISAC members and colleagues from other divisions of the Department of Global Public Health and other Departments at KI.

To date, a range of studies have been conducted on fall injuries and road traffic injuries. More recently, we initiated studies on poisoning

As the association between health condition and injury may vary with age and for different types of injury, focus is placed on injuries among people aged 65 years and over and it is planned to investigate a variety of injury causes.
