    The effect of the transition from the ninth to the tenth revision of the International Classification of Diseases on external cause registration of injury morbidity in Sweden2015In: Injury Prevention, ISSN 1353-8047, E-ISSN 1475-5785, Vol. 21, no 3, p. 189-94Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background Revisions of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) have previously been shown to cause dramatic effects with regard to injury mortality data when implemented. However, limited knowledge exists on the effects on the coding of external causes of injury morbidity, despite this being an important aspect with regard to injury prevention.

    Method Hospitalised injuries in Sweden were studied using time series intervention analysis to observe the effect of the ICD change from ICD-9 to ICD-10 in 1997 on external cause coding.

    Results The results would suggest considerable coding issues with a large spike in the proportion of injury admissions registered without an external cause code in 1997, with continuing, although gradually diminishing, problems up to 2002. The coding change seems to have had an immediate effect on all external cause of injury categories, although the categories that were not directly convertible from ICD-9 to ICD-10 were seemingly more greatly affected.

    Discussion The study illustrates the potential issues associated with changes between ICD revisions and the importance of data quality control both during surveillance and collection of data, but also when presenting injury trends across ICD versions.

    Fall-related fracture trends among elderly in Sweden – exploring transitions among hospitalized cases2013In: Journal of Safety Research, ISSN 0022-4375, E-ISSN 1879-1247, no 45, p. 141-145Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Problem

    Fall-related injuries have been a cause of worry during the end of the 20th century with increasing trends among the elderly.

    Method

    Using data from the Swedish National Patient Register (NPR) based on hospital admissions, this study explores the trends in fall-related fractures between 1998 and 2010.

    Results

    The data shows a decreasing trend in fall-related fractures in all age- and sex-specific groups apart from men 80 years and above. While hip fracture incidence rates decreased in all age- and sex-specific groups, both central fractures and upper extremity fractures have increased in all age- and sex-specific groups apart from women 65–79 years. Lower extremity fractures have increased in the older age groups and decreased in the younger. Discussion: The differences found between the groups of fractures and by age- and sex-specific groups indicate a possible transition where more serious fractures are decreasing while less serious fractures increase among hospitalized cases.

    Summary

    Perhaps due to a focus on hip fracture prevention, this study shows that while the incidence rate of hospitalized hip fractures has decreased, other fall-related hospitalized fractures have increased.

    Impact on industry

    Potentially, this could be indicative of a healthier younger elderly, coupled with a frailer older elderly requiring more comprehensive healthcare also for less serious injuries. Further research is needed to confirm our results.

    Hospitalized fall-related injury trends in Sweden between 2001 and 20102016In: International Journal of Injury Control and Safety Promotion, ISSN 1745-7300, E-ISSN 1745-7319, Vol. 23, no 3, p. 277-283Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Previous studies have indicated increasing trends of hospitalized fall-related injuries amongst elderly. Whether this is true also in Sweden is unknown though it is important to study considering the potential societal impact. Data were obtained regarding hospitalized injuries with falls as external cause among those aged 65 years and above with information on injury type, gender and age, on a yearly basis, from 2001 to 2010. Age- and sex-specific incidence rates were calculated (per 100,000 population) for all fall-related injuries, and for each injury type and trend lines were drawn. Linear regression analyses and percentage change were calculated for the types of fall-related injuries. A decreasing incidence was observed in the younger age groups (65-79 years) with greater decreases amongst women (women: -14.6%, men 65-79 years: -10.5%). However, increasing rates were observed in the older age group (80 years and above), with greater increases amongst men (women: 4.3%, men: 11.4%). Superficial injuries showed greater increases than fractures amongst those aged 80 years and above. This study indicates that older elderly in Sweden are increasingly being hospitalized for less serious injuries. This changing injury panorama is important to include in the future planning of both health care and fall-related prevention.

    Trends in hip fracture incidence rates among elderly in Sweden 1987-20092013In: Journal of Public Health, ISSN 1741-3842, E-ISSN 1741-3850, Vol. 35, no 1, p. 125-131Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background Previous trend studies have shown large increases in hip fracture incidence rates among the elderly. International research, however, suggests a levelling off, or decline, of hip fracture incidence rates, although for Sweden this remains to be studied.

    Methods Data were obtained regarding hip fractures among individuals 65 years and above from 1987 to 2009. Analysis was performed in three steps. First, age- and sex-specific trends in hip fracture rates per 100 000 and the mean age when sustaining a hip fracture were analysed. Secondly, the annual percentage change was used to compare time periods that helped to quantify changes in secular trends. Finally, linear and Poisson regression models were used to examine the trend data and observed rates.

    Results The absolute number of hip fractures among the elderly in Sweden has largely remained constant between 1987 and 2009, while incidence rates have decreased for all age- and sex-specific groups, with the largest changes in the younger age groups and among women. The mean age of sustaining a hip fracture has increased for both men and women.

    Conclusions This study supports other international studies in showing a decrease in hip fracture incidence rates among the elderly, especially since the mid-1990s.

    Cykelolyckor i Karlstads kommun 2007-20112013Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning

    Att cykla är hälsosamt och miljövänligt, men tyvärr också ganska farligt. Även om forskning tyder på att hälsovinsterna överstiger skaderiskerna, krävs åtgärder för att minska de cykelrelaterade skadorna i samhället.

    Genom att studera och sammanställa uppgifter om olyckor som hänt finns möjlighet att hitta utsatta grupper, typiska olycksmönster eller farliga platser inom en avgränsad befolkning eller geografiskt område. Denna statistikrapport använder sig av data som insamlats av hälso- och sjukvården och polisen i Värmland inom datasystemet STRADA (Swedish Traffic Accident Data Acquisition) kring cykelskadade i Karlstads kommun mellan 2007 och 2011. Mellan dessa år skadade sig 857 cyklister så pass allvarlig att de var tvungna att uppsöka akutmottagningen på Centralsjukhuset i Karlstad.

    Cykelskador inträffar oftare under sommarhalvåret, mellan klockan 14.00 och 21.00 samt på fredagar. Män är något mer representerade i hela skadebilden och åldrarna 10-14 och 40-65 år är överrepresenterade.

    Trots lagliga krav var det en stor andel av 10-14 åringarna som inte bar hjälm vid skadetillfället (flickor; 60 procent och pojkar; 45 procent).

    Geografiskt följer cykelolyckorna i Karlstads kommun befolkningstätheten i stora drag, men särskilda kluster kan identifieras på vissa platser och sträckor som därmed framstår som särskilt olycksdrabbade. Bland annat syns anhopningar av olyckshändelser kring ett antal broar och tunnlar och på dessa platser behöver djupare olycksanalyser genomföras. Rapporten ger också exempel på hur statistiken kan användas för att utvärdera gjorda trafiksäkerhetsförbättringar.

    Feasibility of railway suicide prevention strategies: A focus group study2011In: Advances in safety, reliability and risk management / [ed] C. Bérenguer, A. Grall & G. C. Soares, CRC Press, 2011, p. 6-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Suicide is a major public health concern, both nationally and internationally. In Sweden, more than 1200 people commit suicide every year, amounting to about 25% of all injury deaths. Five percent of these suicides occur on railways. From a railway safety perspective, suicide constitutes a clear majority (about 75%) of all Swedish railwayrelated fatalities. Several studies describe the frequency and characteristics of railway suicide in different countries. Some of them also discuss various preventative possibilities. However, fewer studies, if any, analyze and evaluate such strategies in more detail. In Sweden, a comprehensive research program in this field is now underway. The ultimate goal is to develop a set of preventative strategies against railway suicide that can be used by the railway transportation providers themselves, as an integral part of their regular safety work. The overall goal of this study is to explore preferences for preventative strategies against railway suicide among relevant professional groups. For the above purpose, a focus group approach was chosen. Focus group interview is a qualitative method based on group dynamics intended to gain non-quantitative in-depth understanding of a certain phenomenon, not obtainable from individual interviews. In total, 22 interviewees were selected and divided into four groups. Each interview session began with a brief presentation of the results so far accumulated from the ongoing research programme. Thus, all participants were given a common platform for the discussion.

    Railway suicide analysis and Prevention in a Swedish context2008Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Suicide is a dominating, although hidden, safety problem on Swedish railroads. The aim of my first paper (Rådbo et al, 2005) is to describe the epidemiology of fatal train-person collisions as a basis for systems-oriented prevention. Data on collision circumstances were collected from narrative reports at the Swedish National Rail Administration. Results shows how the events were evenly distributed by months and weekdays, however most suicides occur in day-time while unintentional events usually occur at night. Most train-person collisions happened in densely populated areas, and 75 % of the suicide victims were waiting on or close to the track before the collision. Significance test between types of injury event (suicide, accident or unknown intent) showed small or no differences, and one conclusion is that traditional approaches to accident prevention by systems modification seem largely applicable to combat railroad suicide as well. Our findings show promising preventive potentials. The aim of my second paper (Rådbo et al, 2007) is to theoretically derive and categorise a set of railway suicide prevention strategies with special regard to measures under the potential control of the railway system-owners. The methodological approach departs from synthesizing generic accident and suicide prevention models. Secondly, potential barriers are identified by means of fault tree analysis (FTA), and thirdly results from this analysis are validated against Haddons ten energy-based injury prevention strategies.Our results include 20 separate preventive strategies, of which most are in reach of railway system-owners themselves. Four of them aim to reduce perceived attractiveness and availability, nine aim to influence accessibility to track areas and the potential of collision, five strategies aim to mitigate consequences of collision, and three encompass medical survival and recovery strategies.To evaluate the barriers practical feasibility, etc., is beyond the aim of this study. However, technological development and innovations may turn less realistic alternatives today into more realistic possibilities tomorrow, as has been proven in other fields.Further researchAt the ERA seminar I also will tell you about further research and my two not yet publicized studies that includes in my theses. The aim of my third paper Suicide and potentials for suicide prevention on the Swedish Rail Network; a qualitative multiple case study is to evaluate the content of existing reports on railway suicide incidents from a preventive perspective and to identify and categorise additional preventive-oriented information from independent site investigations. The overall goal of my fourth study Feasibility of railway suicide prevention strategies; a focus group study is to explore preferences for preventative strategies against railway suicide among relevant professional groups. More specifically, this study aims are to analyze the acceptance and understanding of theoretically and empirically derived preventative strategies among selected professional groups, and to validate and further develop these strategies.

    Modeller för riskbedömning av konsumenttjänster: En kunskapsöversikt2011Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna rapport har till syfte att granska vilken forskning som finns avseende riskbedömning av konsumenttjänster och vilka modeller som används för att genomföra riskbedömningen. Rapporten har tillkommit på uppdrag av Konsumentverket som en del i ett pågående projekt om tillämpad tjänstesäkerhet som syftar till att utveckla en modell för riskbedömning av tjänster.

    Denna kunskapsöversikt har sammanställts utifrån sökningar i databaser och via sökmotorer. Efter manuell genomgång bedömdes sex studier vara relevanta för denna kunskapsöversikt. Forskningen som finns är mycket begränsad, varför kunskapsöversikten har kompletterats med material som Konsumentverket tipsat om, samt sådant som hittats genom manuella genomgångar av relevanta artiklars referenslistor. Sökningarna har varit inriktade på tjänster inom turism.

    Fokus i forskningen ligger på arrangörers riskbedömningar. De modeller som framkommit grundar ofta sin riskbedömning på sannolikheter och konsekvenser, både utifrån kvantitativ och kvalitativ metod. Modellerna kan vara tekniska och detaljrika eller översiktliga och flexibla.

    Modellerna som presenterats är inte direkt tillämpbara inom Konsumentverkets tillsynsområde men kunskapssammanställningen bör kunna utgöra ett underlag för ett fortsatt arbete med utveckling av en modell för riskbedömning av tjänster vid Konsumentverket.

    Suicide mortality trends in young people aged 15 to 19 years in Lithuania2011In: Acta Paediatrica, ISSN 0803-5253, E-ISSN 1651-2227, Vol. 100, no 11, p. 476-480Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    AIM:

    This paper considers the suicide mortality trends from 1990-2009 in young people aged 15 to 19 years in Lithuania.

    METHODS:

    Suicide and injury mortality data, plus mortality data from all causes, were used to compare the trend lines.

    RESULTS:

    Suicide mortality rate in young people aged 15-19 years and in all population showed a rising trend from 1990, and then a decreasing trend from 2002 year. This trend was significant exclusively in boys. When comparing suicide deaths as a percentage of injury deaths and of all deaths in the age group 15-19 years, rising trends for boys were evident, whilst in girls, there was no evidence of change.

    The usage of safety management tools in Swedish municipalities2010In: Safety Science, ISSN 0925-7535, E-ISSN 1879-1042, Vol. 48, no 3, p. 288-295Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Although municipalities clearly deal with a broad range of safety issues, little is known about their safety management practices and their usage of safety management tools across sectors. In order to open up the municipal safety management toolbox, this study explores which tools that are being used in Swedish municipalities and by which municipal sector. Our results indicate that tools such as risk inventory, safety rounds and risk analysis are broadly used across most sectors, while usage of other tools is more restricted to certain sectors. Legislative requirements, tool characteristics and actual needs are assumed to influence the usage of tools. Further research in this field is needed for better adaption of safety management tools to municipal needs.

    A process-oriented evaluation of nine accident investigation methods2015In: Safety Science Monitor, ISSN 1443-8844, Vol. 19, no 1, article id 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A range of methods for accident investigation have been published. They focus on different aspects and provide support in various respects to the entire investigation process. Previous research has examined strengths and weaknesses of methods in analytical terms, but few or none so far have studied their capability to support the accident investigation process. During a number of training courses on advanced accident investigation methodology, held annually at Karlstad University since 2003, systematic tests of nine accident investigation methods were performed. The methods' process supporting properties were qualitatively evaluated against a general model of the investigation process. The results show that none of the methods provide strong support for all steps of the investigation process. A few methods, including STEP and Deviation analysis, however, provide a relatively strong support for certain key elements of the process. Most methods are supportive to the analysis phase, but less supportive to the planning and concluding phases. This in turn implies that several methods should be termed accident analysis methods rather than accident investigation methods. The results also point to differences in analytical principles and output formats, which also affect their usefulness.
