Study TitleInjuries in General Practice in the Australian Capital Territory, 1992
Primary InvestigatorMcClure, R., J. Health, N. C. F. E. A. P.
ADA IDau.edu.anu.ada.ddi.00808
AbstractThe aim of this study was to provide the first data on the epidemiology of injury presenting to general practice. This data is to complement other data on the incidence of injuries in hospitals, where research in to injury prevalence has been traditionally focused. A primary aim of the research was to describe the incidence and distribution of all injuries presenting for medical attention, in a defined Australian population. The aim of this data was to clarify the role played by General Practitioners in the management of acute injury in the community. The main variables include: the nature of injury, body-part injured, whether admitted to hospital and whether the presentation was the first visit to a doctor for that injury. Background variables include age and sex of injured persons.

Methodology Content
Sampling ProcedureRandom sample and Incidence sample. A sample of 39 General Practitioners was randomly drawn from a register of 220 ACT General Practitioners compiled by the New South Wales branch of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP). This list is continually amended and updated from a variety of sources and is not restricted to members of the RACGP. Those selected randomly were then traced to confirm whether or not they fulfilled the criteria being used by this study to define a General Practitioner. Fifteen did not, and were rejected. General Practitioners were than invited to participate in the study, being approached by letter and telephone and in some cases interviewed to discuss details. Those that agreed (two refused), for two weeks afterwards, completed short survey forms for each patient whom they considered to have presented with an injury within that time period. Number of Units in Original Sample: 39 groups (General Practitioners)

Mode of Data CollectionShort survey forms were completed for each patient visiting the 24 general practices over the two week period whom the General Practitioners considered to have presented with an injury. One section of this survey was completed by the patients and one section was completed by the General Practitioners.
