Royal Life Saving Society – Australia research aims to understand who, where, how and why fatal and non-fatal drowning occurs so that we can develop appropriate drowning prevention and water safety strategies to keep people safe.
The following articles - key issues - focus on research and drowning data from the past 10 years, which identifies high-risk populations and contributing factors to drowning. They were all published in the Royal Life Saving Society - Australia National Drowning Report for 2019.
This work will inform future drowning prevention policies and ensure appropriate messaging targeted at those most at risk.
