    Dog bites are a recognized public health issue due to their impact on human and animal health/welfare. 

    For this study dog bite patient hospitalization data geolocated to the street address were collected from clinical records management systems from the four main public hospitals in the Metro South Hospital Health Service region of Queensland for a 5-year period (ie. 01/07/2013 to 30/06/2017). We investigated the epidemiology of three clinical outcomes including probability of paediatric cases (paediatric vs. adult), probability of dog bites to the head (head injury vs. other injury), and probability of re-presentation to the ED following their initial dog bite (yes or no).

    This presentation will discuss the risk factors identified as well as present our predictive maps showing significant clustering of paediatric case probability associated with socioeconomic status of the places of residence. We also show that public health interventions to reduce the burden of dog bites should be targeted to the populations most at-risk in the areas identified in this study.
