The Injury Surveillance Program (ISP) at the Massachusetts Department of Public Health works to reduce the number of injuries to Massachusetts residents. We examine the numbers, trends, risk factors, and circumstances of many causes of injuries. Some examples of injury causes are falls, fires and burns, motor vehicle injuries, poisonings and drug overdoses, firearms, suffocations, drownings, and dog bites.
The ISP also maintains two data systems in-house: the Massachusetts Violent Death Reporting System (MAVDRS), and the Weapon Related Injury Surveillance System (WRISS). We provide data from these systems and from other sources, to injury prevention professionals who may use it to develop projects and policies.
