New Jersey Central Nervous System Injury Surveillance


The New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH), Center for Health Statistics (CHS) received a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to conduct traumatic brain injury (TBI) and spinal cord injury (SCI) surveillance and validation. This was accomplished in the past by manual abstraction of hospital medical records. Moving forward, CHS, in conjunction with the New Jersey Commission on Spinal Cord Research (NJCSCR) and the newly formed Traumatic Brain Injury Research Council, has developed a Central Nervous System (CNS) Registry. The CNS Registry will be an injury database available online for hospital staff to download and directly enter data on TBI and SCI patients. Featured below are TBI reports from previous years and a link to the new database. In the future, we expect to feature annual CNS injury reports.
