The recording for our webinar on using NC DETECT for Motor Vehicle Crash Injury Surveillance is now available on our training page. This 40-minute webinar shares tips on using emergency department (ED) and EMS data from NC DETECT for motor vehicle crash injury surveillance and also provides a brief overview of the North Carolina Crash Injury Surveillance System (NC-CISS). NC-CISS leverages NC DETECT ED visit data and other data sources to gain additional insights into the health outcomes of motor vehicle crashes. The slide below is one example from the webinar. It shows the proportion of persons injured in a police-reported motor vehicle crash who were admitted to a hospital inpatient unit, grouped by type of road user. Note: The NC-CISS portion of this webinar was supported supported by the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control of the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) under award number CE16-1602.

More information about NC-CISS is available on the CCHI website.
