To deliver service, training and research in injury, both locally and internationally and improve injury outcomes through innovation in prevention, models of care, training, information management and capacity building.
The Monash Alfred Injury Network (MAIN) is a strong collaborative partnership between Monash University and Alfred Health, two internationally-recognised institutions with world-class trauma and injury researchers and clinicians.
Injury is a major public health problem globally. Approximately 973 million people worldwide sustain injuries that require healthcare intervention each year, a third of which occur in the workplace.
MAIN is an interdisciplinary network that focuses on the prevention and management of injury and trauma. This virtual network draws from Monash University’s and Alfred Health's strengths in health and behavioural sciences, acute care, general practice and primary care, epidemiology, statistics, health economics, actuarial science, engineering, design and the social sciences.
MAIN acts as a facilitator, coordinator and leader of researchers, clinicians and other specialists who have the expertise and capability to deliver solutions that reduce the global burden of injury.
MAIN members also offer graduate programs, short courses and workshops in Australia and internationally, and provide consultancy services to governments, industry and healthcare providers.
