Injury control curriculum offers foundational course content

By: HIPRC Date: October 25th, 2017

A new series of prebuilt modules for University of Washington faculty and students is looking to build knowledge of injury prevention and control.

The free “Interprofessional Studies on Injury Prevention and Control” curriculum offers a series of six short modules that can be used separately or together in Canvas. The modules are designed for incorporation into a broad range of courses, including pre-medicine, epidemiology, sociology, health sciences, communication and more.

Each module has been developed with attention to regional and local population health needs and features lectures from injury control specialists at Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center.

Module topics include:

  • Principles of Injury Control
  • Violence Prevention
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Changing Health Behaviors
  • Care of Injured Patients
  • Global Injury

Students can enroll individually, or faculty can important any or all modules into their own classes via Canvas. The only requirement to view or use the content is a UW NetID.
