    Author's abstract: Health professionals are key to any progress in reducing motor vehicle-related injury and death, yet they have been slow to recognize their role in this important area. One contributing factor to this situation has been the absence from the curriculums of health professional schools of courses on motor vehicle related crashes and occupant protection. A comprehensive survey course on motor vehicle injury and death was developed, implemented and evaluated at the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health. The most important overall course objectives were that students: comprehend that highway deaths and injury are a major public health problem; understand that mitigation of this problem can be accomplished by proven public health preventative techniques; understand and be able to engage in multidisciplinary solutions. It was hoped that students would thus champion the prevention of road related trauma as a high priority for public health agencies, professional health associations, and community organizations. The initial objectives and curriculum were reviewed by 45 injury professionals from 7 different fields. The course was presented, revised, and presented again (the second time without benefit of NHTSA funding). The draft guide was re-reviewed by faculty at 13 of the Schools of Public Health. This final guide contains a discussion of some practical aspects of introducing and implementing the course, overall course objectives, specific learning objectives, content, and suggested readings for 9 topic areas, an annotated film list, organizational resources, materials from which vugraphs or slides could.be made, a sample examination, information on ordering materials, and a list of resource persons by geographical area. The objectives of this guide are to provide a practical model for such a course, to acquaint health profession faculty with the resource available to them for course development, and to provide those new to the field of motor vehicle trauma with a network of professionals who are willing to aid them in their efforts. This guide is not a programmed learning text or a collection of canned lectures, rather it is intended to provide a framework as well as encouragement to those who seek to develop such a course at other institutions.
