Sports safety policy and practice needs to be informed by robust injury incidence and burden data. All stakeholders need to understand:

• they bear the cost of the problem
• they have a role in prevention
• there will be significant (cost) implications if they do not invest in prevention
• there is an effective solution

While sports injury is often passed over as being just part of the game, not only is sports injury preventable but it is also cost-effective. 

Presented by Dr Lauren Fortington, PhD, MHSc, BP&O

Dr Fortington is an injury epidemiologist who is working to improve the collection, analysis and reporting of injury data in different sports settings to best understand the impact of injuries and ways to prevent them occurring. Lauren is conducting investigations of injuries that occur in elite and community sport including men’s and women’s rugby and Australian football, Gaelic sports and Olympic sports. Lauren’s research seeks to improve the understanding of longitudinal data (when multiple injuries are sustained over time in individuals) as well as reporting and analysis of non-acute, non-time loss injuries in sports settings. Dr Fortington is also leading studies of safety in community sports organisations, aimed towards informing policy on the prevention and best management of serious and fatal events in sport.
