EXTERNALLY-FUNDED RESEARCH PROJECTS
Preventing violence-related mortality and morbidity among people exposed to the criminal justice system
This research project examines violence-related mortality and morbidity among people involved in the criminal justice system. It uses linked correctional (prison and youth justice), mortality (death and coronial), and health service (ambulance, emergency department, and hospital) records to examine violence victimisation in whole population cohorts of people involved in the criminal justice system in Queensland, Australia. Violence in this project is considered through the intersection of sex and Indigenous status. This research project generates new and policy-relevant evidence on the rate, risk, predictive factors, and circumstances of violence-related mortality and morbidity in this population.
