(1) Injury Control Research Centers (ICRC) have undertaken a broad range of work. For example, the John Hopkins University ICRC has sponsored Summer Training Institutes for injury control researchers and practitioners. Harvard has been a key planning, training, and program resource for injury control programs in the New England States. Work at the University of North Carolina ICRC has led to the creation of an injury control unit in the North Carolina State Health Department. Harborview ICRC serves as a State and regional resource in trauma and burn care and is a leader of efforts to reduce pedestrian injuries and injuries associated with motorcycles and bicycles. (2) Funded Injury Prevention and Control Projects address priority research concerns encompassing acute care, biomechanics, prevention, epidemiology, and rehabilitation. As examples, researchers are investigating the mechanism of traumatic brain injury due to impact, other investigators are defining risk factors for intimate partner violence and another group is evaluating the effectiveness of trauma systems. (3) Surveillance programs address E- coded hospital discharge data; model surveillance systems to address nonfatal injuries resulting from intentional and unintentional injuries.


Applications are reviewed on the basis of scientific/technical merit, with attention being given to such matters as: (1) The degree to which the applicant satisfies the essential requirements and possesses other desired characteristics, such as richness, breadth, and scientific merit of the overall application relative to the types of research, demonstrations, and special projects proposed; (2) clarity of purpose and overall qualifications, adequacy and appropriateness of personnel to accomplish proposed activities; (3) feasibility and likelihood of producing meaningful results based on the significance of the proposed activities and relevant evaluation procedures; (4) overall match between the proposed programs and the nation's health priorities and needs; and (5) reasonableness of the proposed budget in relation to the work proposed.
