Many observations support the concept of an entity that could be described as ‘rural injury,’ yet the nature and limits of this concept are little explored. We demonstrate the complexity through descriptions along a single dimension: place.

Rural injury may be considered as consisting of both ‘Rural specific injury’ (Farm/agricultural, Forestry and Mining related injuries and Injuries in state/national parks) and also rural instances of ‘Injury which is not location specific’. Examples of the latter category include water related (especially boating & fishing), other industrial, Road Trauma, Sporting and Domestic injuries.
