Introducing the "Standards and Indicators for Model Level I and II Trauma Center Injury and Violence Prevention Programs"
Tuesday, November 14, 2017 12:00:00 PM PST - 2:00:00 PM PST
The Safe States Alliance, in partnership with the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), is pleased to release the Standards and Indicators for Model Level I and II Trauma Center Injury and Violence Prevention Programs. This new publication is the first to offer Level I and II Trauma Center Injury and Violence Prevention (IVP) programs a set of voluntary standards and indicators to guide the design and implementation of a model IVP program. The components and indicators will give programs at all levels ideas on how their programs could be expanded or strengthened, while also providing concrete, consensus-based descriptions of what constitutes a model program — one more likely to deliver the shared goals of reducing the burden and costs of injury and violence in communities across the United States. The Safe States Alliance, a member of the Trauma Prevention Coalition, received funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through NACCHO to conduct activities in support of strengthening Trauma Center IVP programs with a goal of improving alignment and collaboration with public health efforts. With guidance from a trauma prevention steering committee, stakeholders were engaged to build consensus and establish core components and associated standards and indicators of a model Level I and Level II Trauma Center IVP program. The report provides: • Key findings from a national survey of Level I and II Trauma Center IVP program coordinators; • A set of five consensus-based core components for Level I and II Trauma Center IVP programs; • Model standards, and indicators that suggest the model standard is being met, for each of the five core components.
