Evidence-Informed Practice Recommendations


In April, 2013, the Ontario Injury Prevention Resource Centre released the Ontario Regional Injury Data Report. The report presented the most common causes of injury in each Ontario region (Central East, Central West, Eastern, South West, Northern and Toronto) in terms of emergency room visits, hospitalizations and deaths. The regional reports contain recommendations pertaining to the most common causes of injury in each respective region.

The Evidence-Informed Practice Recommendations document is a compilation of all evidence-informed practice recommendations prepared for each region. By combining each of the evidence-informed recommendation sections into one document, injury prevention practitioners will have access to prevention strategies for the most common causes of injury across the province, in addition to the strategies provided in the individual regional reports.

In accordance with the most common causes of injury in Ontario, evidence-informed practice recommendations have been prepared on the following topics: 

  • falls
  • off-road vehicles
  • on-road vehicles
  • pedestrian incidents
  • unintentional poisoning
  • suffocation and breathing-related incidents
  • sports and recreational injuries
  • suicide
  • violence
