Victorian Injury Surveillance Unit
High-quality injury surveillance data is crucial to preventing injuries and promoting safety. The Victorian Injury Surveillance Unit (VISU) analyses, interprets and disseminates data on injury deaths, hospital admissions and emergency department presentations in the state of Victoria.
VISU holds de-identified data for Victoria on injury deaths, hospital admissions and Emergency Department (ED) presentations. Data are held on three separate datasets - they are not linked. Death data are supplied by the Australian Coordinating Registry and the Victorian Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages. Hospital admissions and emergency department presentations data are supplied by the Department of Health.
