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 five-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) Communication, 3) Policy and 4) Education and Training (2 webinars for this topic: one on education and one on training).
The fifth and final webinar in the series on the NAP will focus on Training. This webinar, held on April 1, 2014, 3:00 pm – 4:15 pm Eastern Time, will feature Dr. Julie Gilchrist of NCIPC, who will provide a quick overview of the NAP and review the NAP's education and training domain and its implications for local health departments. Tara Phebus, Interim Executive Director of the Nevada Institute for Children’s Research and Policy at the University of Nevada and Margarita DeSantos, Nurse Case Manager, Southern Nevada Health District will focus on a safe sleep training program for hospital staff who interact with newborns and parents. The final speaker, Dr. Kelli Will, Clinical Psychologist and Associate Professor, Eastern Virginia Medical School, will discuss her project about getting trainings approved for continuing education credits for health, allied health and safety professionals.
