In case you missed it, Injury Prevention has revived its podcast series. In each podcast we interview the author of that edition’s editor’s choice article. The first four episodes of our podcast under EIC Rod McClure are available to listen now, and are:
The papers that helped shape a career in Injury Prevention. In the first podcast of this series, Rod McClure, Editor-in-Chief of Injury Prevention, talks to Rachid Salmi, Professor of Public Health at the Université de Bordeaux, who pursued a research topic that was “under recognised” in the 1970s.
In the second podcast of a series about the papers that helped shape a career in Injury Prevention, Professor Rod McClure talks to Professor David Studdert, expert in health law and empirical legal research from the Stanford Law School and Stanford University School of Medicine, USA, whose latest research career focus on the burden of injuries and deaths from firearms, especially in the wake of mass shootings.
In the first podcast of 2019, Editor-in-Chief of Injury Prevention Rod McClure talks to Natalie Wilkins, from the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, Georgia, USA. Dr Wilkins experience in the injury prevention field ranges from opioids overuse to car accidents, sports injury, child abuse and suicide. She is the guest editor of a supplement of the Injury Prevention journal titled “Achieving population level change”, which brings together different approaches for achieving population-level change to improve injury-related health of communities.
This month’s guest is a specialist in childhood burns and violence-related injuries in South Africa. Professor Ashley Van Niekerk is the deputy director of the Violence, Injury and Peace Research Unit, South African Medical Research Council-University of South Africa. He tells Editor-in-Chief of Injury Prevention, Professor Rod McClure, how the social changes of the 1990s and the current political and economic unrest in the country have been shaping his career in Injury Prevention.
