Using Quality Improvement to Prevent Childhood Injuries: Strategies from the Child Safety Collaborative Innovation and Improvement Network

Dates: 
Thursday, May 11, 2017 - 3:00pm

The Child Safety Collaborative Innovation and Improvement Network (CS CoIIN) uses continuous quality improvement, shared metrics, and real-time data to enable states and jurisdictions to implement and spread evidence-based child safety practices and programs. This webinar explained the purpose and methodology of the CS CoIIN and described innovative approaches and lessons learned from the CS CoIIN’s first cohort. The webinar was led by CS CoIIN staff in the Children’s Safety Network, and CS CoIIN participants from Vermont and Indiana will share their experiences and strategies. Indiana’s CS CoIIN team members discussed their efforts to implement electronic check-up forms for child passenger safety inspections and the benefits and challenges encountered throughout this process. Vermont’s CS CoIIN team members discussed the development and implementation of a pilot project at a community hospital to determine the feasibility of screening for suicide risk in the emergency department and to improve coding for suicidal ideation and intentional and undetermined injuries.
