November 3, 2017


TCAA is excited to partner with the Safe States Alliance and the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), to announce the upcoming release of theStandards and Indicators for Model Level I and II Trauma Center Injury and Violence Prevention Programs. This new publication will be the first to outline the core components of a model injury and violence prevention (IVP) program within Level I and II trauma centers.

This new 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 that describe a model injury and violence prevention (IVP) program within Level I and II trauma centers;
  • A set of voluntary standards, and their respective indicators, to guide programs on how they can expand or strengthen their program within each of the core components; and
  • Guidance on how newer, smaller programs can move along the continuum within each of these core components to meet the standards for model, mature programs.

Join Safe States and NACCHO for an introductory webinar on November 14, 2017 at 3:00 – 4:00PM EST.

The webinar will provide an overview of the report, discuss key highlights, and offer an opportunity to discuss its use and implications for the field with panelists from the trauma injury prevention community. The webinar will be recorded for future playback and reference.
