The Injury Surveillance Workgroup (ISW6) is a collaborative led by Safe States Alliance with participation from CSTE, CDC, and Society for the Advancement of Violence and Injury Research (SAVIR). CSTE will continue to participate in ISW, now in its sixth generation, through monthly conference calls, which are used as a forum to explore the appropriate definition for an injury in hospital discharge data. The 2003 definition recommended by ISW3 only counts as cases those with a primary diagnosis of an injury, while the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) national emergency department database counts injury codes or E-codes in other fields.
