BCIRPU operates the BC component of the Canadian Hospitals Injury Reporting and Prevention Program (CHIRPP)– an injury surveillance system funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada and operating at 15 hospital emergency departments across Canada. BC Children’s Hospital is the only CHIRPP hospital in BC. The program began in 1990 and continues to amass extensive data and information on child and youth injury, which can be used by government, health authorities and other stakeholders to inform injury prevention policy and programs.
