Summary

Scientific title

Orthopaedic Trauma and Tourism in Far North Queensland

Abstract for the general public

Visitors to Queensland are often prone to orthopaedic injuries resulting in hospitalization. Reasons for this may include that tourists are often younger and more likely to engage in risky behaviours. The aim of this study is to define whether or not tourists suffer from a different subset of orthopaedic injuries compared to the local population.
