Health education and injury control : integrating approaches.
The prevention of injuries, a major public health problem, is of interest to a growing number of public health professionals from a variety of disciplines.
Historically, there has been tension between those who propose injury prevention strategies that focus on the adoption of protective behaviors by individuals and those who propose strategies that circumvent the role of individual behavior by providing automatic or passive protection.
This tension may be counterproductive to finding comprehensive solutions to injury problems, and a better understanding of the inherent strengths and limitations of each of these approaches is needed.
