How can research help?
Veterinary injury can only be helped by further knowledge, surveillance and prevention techniques. Some ideas for further research include:
-- What role does avoiding medical treatment have on the length and quality of a veterinarian's career?
-- How can surveillance systems be improved to detect more non-fatal injuries? We know that most vet injuries are non-fatal and are not reported to any type of agency.
-- In what ways can the veterinary business model be improved to reduce injuries?
