During November 1993-April 1994, WRISS received reports of 1345 weapon-related injuries, including 451 GSWS and 894 SIWs.
In Massachusetts, findings from WRISS routinely have been disseminated throughout the state to violence-prevention groups, hospitals, and policymakers through newsletters, presentations, and staff training.
The MDPH is using WRISS data to establish an enhanced firearm surveillance system by linking it with mortality and hospital discharge data to estimate weapon-related injury costs, identifying potential risk factors through interviews with victims of unintentional GSWs, and interviewing violence-related GSW victims to assess data validity and provide additional information on victim-offender relationships and precipitating circumstances.
