Description
Aims: To examine the prevalence of health and social outcomes pre- and 3 months post-injury, and the association between New Injury Severity Scores (NISS) and 3- month outcomes, for the Māori cohort of the Prospective Outcomes of Injury Study. Methods: New Zealand residents were recruited from the Accident Compensation Corporation’s entitlement claims register and participants interviewed at 3 months post-injury. Those who reported Māori ethnicity (n=566) were included in the Māori cohort. Results: States indicative of favourable health were less prevalent among the cohort post-injury than pre-injury for all measures examined. Approximately half the cohort were experiencing difficulties walking 3 months after their injury, over two-thirds a level of pain or discomfort, and more than half a level of psychological distress. The prevalence of disability was 49%. The prevalence of some adverse outcomes increased with increasing NISS but a high level of problems were still experienced by those classified as having a ‘minor’ injury. Nonetheless, a majority of the cohort were satisfied with life and they considered themselves to be of good to excellent overall health. Conclusions: Findings emphasise the importance of injury prevention and appropriate post-injury care to reduce the burden experienced by Māori due to injury.
