dc.description.abstract The prevention of child maltreatment and the reduction of abusive injuries and their consequences is an important priority area for CDC. As part of the public health approach in addressing child maltreatment, CDC has launched an effort to develop uniform case definitions and data elements for use in surveillance of child maltreatment and abusive head trauma. In 2008, CDC published Version 1.0 of Child Maltreatment Surveillance: Uniform Definitions for Public Health and Recommended Data Elements (Leeb et al. 2008), which covers all types of child maltreatment. The current report focuses on standard data elements for abusive head trauma—a specific category of child maltreatment that presents unique definitional and measurement challenges. These challenges are discussed followed by a presentation of recommended uniform operational definitions of fatal and nonfatal abusive head trauma based on International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9-CM for morbidity coding and ICD-10 for mortality coding) diagnosis and external- cause-of-injury codes (2001; 2005). Similar processes and formats to that of the Child Maltreatment Surveillance Uniform Definitions and Data Elements have been used in order to maintain consistency and facilitate ease of use. en_US
