Injury Prevention Programme Design
In 1992 the Alcohol & Public Health Research Unit was invited to participate in the design of the programme and evaluation components of a safety intervention programme proposal by the New Zealand Council of Trade Unions' (NZCTU) Workplace Health and Safety Programme to the Accident Rehabilitation Compensation Insurance Corporation. The proposal outlined injury prevention programmes and their associated evaluations in four areas - the logging and meat industries, and back injuries specifically in the manufacturing and private hospital industries.
The evaluation team provided formative input into the proposed design and evaluation of the programmes and the preparation of funding applications. Reviews of injury prevention literature were also undertaken. The Unit subsequently provided evaluation resources for NZCTU projects, funded by ACC. One was an injury prevention programme in the meat industry, involving a formative and process evaluation and an outcome evaluation. Another was a nursing back injury prevention project.
Similar evaluation research projects for other clients have been conducted of an Emergency Department protocol in relation to partner abuse, and a programme to encourage Pacific Island parents to use child restraint equipment in their cars.
