Tool Repository - BC Injury Research and Prevention Unit

Tool Repository

The Tool Repository is a collaborative project between BCIRPU, the Nova Scotia Child Safety and Injury Prevention Program, and the Canadian Collaborating Centres for Injury Prevention and Control funded by Health Canada. It is aimed at injury prevention researchers, program evaluators, and community organizations throughout Canada and the world and provides concise descriptions of measurement tools relevant to injury prevention as well as information on how to obtain the tool. Among others, these include:

  • surveys
  • questionnaires
  • checklists
  • assessment tools

Topics include falls, bicycle safety, work safety, as well as many others. Tools included in the repository are from journal articles as well as some unpublished sources. All relate to the pre-injury event, including safety or preventative measures, the injury event, or the injury itself.
