Facilitating the Integration of Firearm Injury Prevention into Healthcare

April 25, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Facilitating the Integration of Firearm Injury Prevention into Healthcare

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine will host a free, virtual workshop on April 25, 2022, 12:00 PM-5:15 PM ET exploring how firearm injury and mortality prevention can be integrated into routine care in health systems. The workshop will include discussion about the current evidence on strategies for prevention. It will also explore what we have learned about facilitators and barriers to implementation of strategies, and how health systems might work to overcome those barriers to improve the health of patients and communities.

Topics covered will be:

  • Framing of the issue:  Firearm Injuries and Healthcare’s Role in Depolarizing A Public Health Crisis
  • Healthcare Strategies to Reduce Firearm Injury and Mortality
  • Barriers and Facilitators to Implementing Hospital-Based Firearm Injury Prevention Strategies in Urban and Rural Communities
  • Collaborating with Community to Improve Healthcare System Implementation Success and Destigmatize Gun Violence Prevention
  • Defining a Firearms Violence Prevention Roadmap for Hospitals and Health Systems
