Sports Injury Data Dictionary
The Australian Sports Injury Data Dictionary has been developed to provide guidelines for injury data collection and classification for the prevention and control of injury in sport and recreation.
The Dictionary has been written to assist sporting and recreation organisations, researchers, sports medicine professionals, first-aiders and individual clubs collect information on sports injury. The sporting organisation or researcher may customise a data collection form to suit their needs, but a sporting club may choose to use the sport-specific forms below.
The Dictionary is prescriptive in the use of data categories and options within those categories. This is necessary if the advantages of comparability and consistency are to be gained. Users are, of course, free to design forms and data systems that meet their needs, and to extend the items and classification in the Dictionary.
