At the Injury Research Program, Dr. Brussoni places a strong emphasis on students’ learning experience.

Examples of past student projects
Students have the opportunity to assist with research-related tasks, including different methods of data collection and data entry. Students also have opportunities to carry out their own research projects, where they would motivate a research topic, analyze and interpret data, and present their conclusions to an audience. Some examples of past student projects are: investigating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in parents of injured children, determining how fathers’ risk-taking attitudes affect children’s injury risk, and evaluating the effectiveness of a child home safety website for parents.
