Framework for Quality Improvement and Innovation in Child Safety: A Guide to Implementing Injury and Violence Prevention Strategies and Programs

Injuries and violence are leading causes of morbidity and mortality among U.S. children and adolescents. These injuries are preventable. The Children's Safety Now Alliance developed a resource guide, "CSN Framework for Quality Improvement and Innovation in Child Safety: A Guide to Implementing Injury and Violence Prevention Strategies and Programs" which introduces the Children’s Safety Network Framework for Quality Improvement and Innovation in Child Safety, provides background and resources in the three core components of the Framework, and provides state examples of application of the Framework.

The purpose of the Guide to Implementing Injury and Violence Prevention Programs and Strategies is to provide framework and resources to state and jurisdiction maternal and child health (MCH) and injury and violence prevention (IVP) practitioners to increase their capacity to achieve reductions in child and adolescent injury and violence related fatalities, hospitalizations, and emergency department visits.

The goals of the Guide are to help state and jurisdiction maternal and child health and injury and violence prevention practitioners:

  •  Be knowledgeable about a state/jurisdiction-tested framework for reducing injury and violence among infants, children, and adolescents: The Children’s Safety Network Framework for Quality Improvement and Innovation in Child Safety
  • Have a list of resources they can access to start implementing the Framework in their departments of public health
  • Be familiar with the Children’s Safety Network and the opportunity to receive training and technical assistance
