    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    • An emergency department audit of horse-related injury presentations alerted researchers to a hitherto uninvestigated source of childhood harm: non-equine horses. • A search for the term "horse" in the database of the South Australian Injury Surveillance and Control Unit was performed for presentations of horse-related injuries to a paediatric emergency department of an Australian tertiary teaching hospital over a 5-year period. • After all equine-related episodes were extracted, the remaining presentations were herded together and conclusions were jumped to. • When legitimate science and research technique failed, poetic licence was prevailed upon.
