It is part of our mission to share our knowledge about injuries in order to contribute towards preventing similar injuries from happening over and over again.

Every year the government, the regions and the insurance companies pay out millions of Danish kroner in compensation to patients who have been injured in connection with treatment, being examined or due to medication.

The human cost

The injuries often create extra expense in regard to treatment, and, when serious injuries are concerned, the municipalities and other authorities follow up on it by providing social and economic services.

On top of all this is the human cost, and the loss of productivity for society, due to an increase sick leave, disability and death.

We are therefore very open to any initiatives that can minimize the number of preventable injuries, and that is why our data is made available for scientific research, preventive studies and activities in the healthcare system. We also communicate information about injuries ourselves.
