By: Alexandra de Leon Date: April 12th, 2022

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will be hosting a webinar exploring how firearm injury and mortality prevention can be integrated into routine care in health systems. FIPRP’s director, Dr. Fred Rivara will be a part of the planning committee moderating the event.

The webinar will take place: April 25, 2022 | 9:00-3:15 pm PST / 12:00-5:15 pm ET 

A planning committee will host a workshop exploring how firearm injury and mortality prevention can be integrated into routine care in health systems. The workshop will include discussion about the current evidence on strategies for prevention. It will also explore what we have learned about facilitators and barriers to implementation of strategies, and how health systems might work to overcome those barriers to improve the health of patients and communities.

Topics covered will be:

  • Framing of the issue: Firearm Injuries and Healthcare’s Role in Depolarizing A Public Health Crisis
  • Healthcare Strategies to Reduce Firearm Injury and Mortality
  • Barriers & Facilitators to Implementing Hospital-Based Firearm Injury Prevention Strategies in Urban & Rural Communities
  • Collaborating with Community to Improve Healthcare System Implementation Success & Destigmatize Gun Violence Prevention

This workshop is sponsored and co-organized by Northwell Health and The PEACE Initiative and hosted by the The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
