Thank you for joining our latest State Technical Assistance Webinar (STAW) on September 16, 2021 from 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET. During this interactive STAW, the Children's Safety Network introduced their new tool: Health Equity Planner to Implement and Spread Child Safety Strategies in Communities. Participants engaged with presenters to begin using the Health Equity Planner to inform their child safety work.
About the Health Equity Planner:
The Health Equity Planner is for use at the departmental and/or programmatic/work unit level to assess integration of health equity approaches in child safety initiatives. The Health Equity Planner may be used as a stand-alone tool or with the CSN Framework for Quality Improvement and Innovation in Child Safety: A Guide to Implementing Injury and Violence Prevention Strategies and Programs. The CSN Framework puts forth the theory that application of Leadership and Management, Child Safety Expertise, and Systems Improvement will contribute to advances in injury and violence prevention systems and workforce development, which will contribute to positive health impact for children. The Health Equity Planner is divided into five sections, with the latter three aligning with the CSN Framework: Social Determinants of Health, Scope of Work, Leadership and Management, Child Safety Expertise, and Systems Improvement.
Our presenters were:
Jennifer Leonardo, Director, Children's Safety Network
Jenny Stern-Carusone, Associate Director, Children's Safety Network
Maria Katradis, Senior Training and Technical Assistance Associate, Children's Safety Network
Bina Ali, Director, Children’s Safety Network Economics and Data Analysis Resource Center (CSN EDARC)
