This document translates the INSPQ advisory produced by Étienne Blais of the INSPQ and the University of Montréal, and by Diane Sergerie of the INSPQ.
This document is useful in its own right, as the issue of distracted driving gains prominence among public health practitioners and the larger public. The advisory sets out to answer the question: "Does cell phone use while driving increase the risk of traffic collision and personal injury?" (p. lll).
The advisory is also an interesting example of how the INSPQ performs its role in advising the Quebec Health Minister on matters of healthy public policy.
The NCCHPP has a knowledge synthesis, translation and exchange mandate. By translating research, we hope to make it available to the larger community of people with an interest in healthy public policy.
