An epidemiological study among injury victims seeking service in a tertiary care centre
Author(s): Dr. Roy Alban Frank
Abstract: The patterns of disease and disability and their risk factors, the paying capacity and attitudes of people have changed dramatically in the present scenario. These factors are to be studied and reassessed in a newly comprehensive manner. A new structured study will take advantage of the opportunity to bring global researchers together to communicate and work collaboratively in an environment that is strongly seeking new burden statistics. The epidemiological profile is an essential prerequisite for analysing the public health needs in the country and to enable efficient programme planning and management and this in a country like ours is a boon to have. Mortality is an important indicator of the magnitude of a health problem, along with that; there are several thousand injury survivors who are left with permanent disability.
