The climate and terrain of The Hawaiian Islands provide perfect conditions for a variety of sports. Did you know that injuries are the number one cause of death in people under the age of 40 in the Hawaiian Islands?
Mortality statistics do not convey the full extent of the injury problem, however. Fatal injuries represent less than 1% of all injuries requiring medical attention. Although fatal injuries are the most severe, the vast majority of injuries are non-fatal, and in some respects, have much greater public health implications. On an average week in Hawaii 13 residents die from an injury, another 109 are hospitalized and nearly 1,600 others are treated in emergency departments (Hawaii State Department of Public Health, 2018)
On WEDNESDAY MARCH 20, 2019 in Honolulu Hawaii join us to learn more about the causes, prevention, treatment, and nursing best practices in caring for injuries!
