Discussions around research on trails injuries between DLGSC (Sport & Recreation) and Curtin University have progressed to a PHD position being offered by the university.
The study aims to characterise and quantify the burden of ambulance attended injuries and other adverse health events associated with trails-based types of recreation in WA. The results will inform trails management policy, the development of preventive interventions, and the pre-hospital care of patients.
Examples of trails-based types of recreation include mountain biking, hiking, horse-riding, and trail bike riding.
The first paper produced by the project will be a review of what research has been done on trails injuries around the world.
You can find the official listing here. Applications close on June 29th 2020, with the successful applicant required to start by 1st August 2020.
