We all want to live in a world where nothing traumatic ever happens to children, however....
- Injury is the leading cause of death of children aged 1 to 16 years in Australia
There were 686,409 injury-related hospitalisations, which equates to an age standardised injury hospitalisation rate of 1489 per 100,000 children in Australia.
For every severely injured child, there are at least 13 children hospitalised with minor or moderate injuries..
A higher proportion of injured children resided in areas of socioeconomic disadvantage.
The rate of hospitalised injury cases was almost twice as high for children in outer regional and remote areas as for Major cities
