    • Description:
      The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is pleased to provide this document to guide states in preparing a special emphasis report on traumatic brain injury (TBI). In a continued effort to expand TBI surveillance capacity through the Core Violence and Injury Prevention Program, NCIPC expanded the Injury Indicators for the 2010 data year to include more details on the external causes of injury for TBI-related deaths, hospitalizations, and emergency department (ED) visits. The TBI Special Emphasis Report template is a tool produced by NCIPC for state health department injury and violence prevention programs and their partners to facilitate use of the Injury Indicator TBI data and to move it into action. The Special Emphasis Report is built upon the Injury Indicator consensus driven product and as such is in alignment with the TBI Injury Indicators. This methodology is based on recommendations developed by working groups representing the Safe States Alliance; the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE); the CDC and NCIPC; the Society for Advancement of Violence and Injury Research (SAVIR); and individual state partners. States will need to be familiar with the State Injury Indicators: Instructions for Preparing 2010 Data1 document and use it as a reference. Suggested citation: Jones CD, Thomas KE, Johnson RL.
