Unintentional injury is the leading cause of death for people in the United States between the ages of 1 and 44. Homicide and suicide are the second and third leading cause of death for people aged 15-34. The cost of medically treated injuries is estimated at over $100 billion annually. This course examines injury as one of the core public health problems in the United States. Causes such as motor vehicles, opioids, interpersonal and self-inflicted violence, and work are some of the topics examined, including their physical and psychological outcomes. The subsequent costs and burdens to the healthcare system are explored. Policy and behavioral interventions are addressed. Where possible, extensions to international settings are made.
