Injury prevention and control should be highly prioritized in the allocation of public health resources, and principles of etiologic and outcome injury epidemiology should be incorporated in the teaching curriculum. Students can be familiarized with research on environmental and personal risk factors for injuries and enabled to (1) assess the relative effectiveness of alternative injury prevention intervention strategies and (2) evaluate the quality of health provision services and impact of therapeutic interventions and rehabilitative processes. Lower-level students are expected to learn basic data of general applicability, such as indicating proper study designs by type of injury for specific research hypotheses and linking particular preventive measures to Haddon matrix, whereas advanced-level students are expected to be able to develop detailed study designs aiming at investigating the role of a particular condition in the causation and outcome of accidents (events) and injuries (lesions), including self-harm behaviour.
