[Research Presentation] Children less than one year of age are a vulnerable population. Both injury and child abuse and neglect are causes of morbidity and mortality in this population. The literature suggests that the family characteristics of both sub-populations are similar. This study is a retrospective cohort study using administrative data from three administrative data systems. The data from these systems was merged as part of a work project and de-identified. The de-identified data set contained data at an individual child level and has been used in this study. The sample size was 11,821 children with 67,207 occasions of service. Results of the study indicate that infants move frequently across the public health system and that injury is one of the indicators of child abuse and neglect presentations.
