A consensus-driven agenda for emergency medicine firearm injury prevention research.
In order to develop an evidence-based research agenda, the researchers identified fifty-nine final emergency medicine-relevant research questions, including questions that cut across all firearm injury topics and questions specific to self-directed violence (suicide and attempted suicide), intimate partner violence, peer (nonpartner) violence, mass violence, and unintentional ("accidental") injury. Some of these questions could be addressed through research conducted in emergency departments; others would require work in other settings.

Towards valid 'serious non-fatal injury' indicators for international comparisons based on probability of admission estimates.
The aim of this paper was to identify diagnoses with estimated high probability of inpatient admission (PrA) for selected developed countries. Its results confirmed that femoral fractures have high PrA across all countries studied. Strong evidence for high PrA also exists for fracture of base of skull with cerebral laceration and contusion; intracranial haemorrhage; open fracture of radius, ulna, tibia and fibula; pneumohaemothorax and injury to the liver and spleen.
