U.S. Bone and Joint Initiative (USBJI)


Have you wanted trauma injury related data for an international presentation, a NEJM submission or a NIH grant application?  

There is a resource created through a recent collaboration between the OTA (EBQVS members, Jaimo Ahn, Arvind Nana, Gudrun Mirick; Ann Miller) and US Bone and Joint Initiative (Sylvia Watkins-Castillo) that can help: "Injuries" in the 4th edition of the Burden of Musculoskeletal Disease in the US (https://www.boneandjointburden.org/fourth-edition/v0/injuries).  The BMUS contains national prevalence, healthcare utilization, economic cost data and has assisted 230,000 users.  Please take advantage of this valuable resource.
