JAMIE – Joint Action on Monitoring Injuries in Europe 2011-2014

JAMIEThe aim of the JAMIE project is to create at European level a database with reference to causes of all types of accidents leading to injuries. JAMIE is the continuation of the European Injury Database IDB (see also IDB in Romania), and follows to develop one common hospital-based injury data collection system in all EU-member states, by 2015. In order to achieve the aim, a data collection instrument and a coding system for the introduction of data in an electronic database were developed.

Specific objectives:

– Definition of quality criteria for national IDB data collection efforts, like representativeness and comparability;
– An increase in number of countries reporting injury data in accordance with these quality criteria over the years 2012-2014;
– Designated injury data administration centers shall be in full operation in at least 26 countries by mid-2014;
– By then, at least 22 countries will report IDB data in a sustainable manner, applying the full IDB coding of external causes in at least one reference hospital.

This project is co-funded by the European Union for the period April 2011-March 2014.
