The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Traumatic Injury Research Program underwent a systematic review for relevance and impact by the US National Academies (NA) beginning in 2007. The NA concluded in their 2008 report that the Traumatic Injury (TI) Research Program’s efforts for the years 1996-2005 were in priority areas, and demonstrated effects on some end outcomes or well accepted intermediate outcomes, resulting in scores of 4 out of 5 for both relevance and impact.
This implementation plan describes the NIOSH response to these overarching recommendations and the NIOSH Board of Scientific Counselors’ review comments on the NA evaluation, centered primarily on their incorporation into the Strategic Plan for the NIOSH Traumatic Injury Research Program.
