TITLE: Evaluation of MMWR Recommendations/Bike Helmets
ABSTRACT: The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) published recommendations on the use of bicycle helmets in preventing head injuries in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) of February 17, 1995. The evaluation of the bicycle helmet guidelines offers a timely opportunity to explore "lessons learned" before NCIPC develops and disseminates future guidelines.
