The National Action Plan for Child Injury Prevention - Webinar 1: Data and Surveillance


In 2012, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) released the National Action Plan for Child Injury Prevention (NAP). Based on the public health model, the NAP framework provides a vision which guides actions and explores the role of federal, state, local, public, and private partners in the prevention of childhood injury.

This four part webinar series, brought to you by the Children’s Safety Network (CSN) National Injury and Violence Prevention Resource Center and The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), will explore four of the NAP’s domains: 1) Data and Surveillance, 2) Education, 3) Policy and 4) Communication.

During this first webinar, Dr. Julie Gilchrist of the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) will provide a quick overview of the NAP and review the NAP’s data and surveillance domain and its implications for local health departments. The next speaker will be Dr. George Bahouth from CSN’s Economics and Data Analysis Resource Center about the data that is available from CSN. Our final speaker will be from a local health department about their strategies, challenges and successes for addressing data and surveillance of injury in their community.
