WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE?

This webinar series will be relevant to those with a variety of experiences and/or years of service:

  • Professionals working in injury and violence prevention and/or other areas of public health

  • Individuals anywhere along the spectrum of professional development – both those new to public health and/or injury and violence prevention, as well as those who have been working for several years and want to further develop their competencies.

 

OVERVIEW:

The Core Competencies for Injury and Violence Prevention were developed by professionals with a long history of working in public health and injury and violence prevention (IVP) in hospital, health department, community, and academic settings. The competencies can provide a roadmap for gaining or strengthening the essential knowledge, skills and behaviors needed to grow professionally, and also strengthen the field and practice of IVP.

 

In this series of webinars, you will learn from experienced professionals in the field about how they use the competencies to develop and advance their own skills, as well as those of staff they manage. In addition to personal professional development, the competencies can be used to understand what knowledge and skills are needed in the continuum of developing, implementing and evaluating IVP programs and policies.

 

The first webinar will provide the rational for this series, highlighting the ways the competencies can help participants in their work. Webinars two through six will address core competencies for IVP one through seven, with core competencies eight and nine addressed throughout each presentation.

 

The Core Competencies for Injury and Violence Prevention:

  1. Ability to describe and explain injury and/or violence as a major social and health problem.

  2. Ability to access, interpret, use and present injury and/or violence data.

  3. Ability to design and implement injury and/or violence prevention activities.

  4. Ability to evaluate injury and/or violence prevention activities.

  5. Ability to build and manage an injury and/or violence prevention program.

  6. Ability to disseminate information related to injury and/or violence prevention to the community, other professionals, key policy makers and leaders through diverse communication networks.

  7. Ability to stimulate change related to injury and/or violence prevention through policy, enforcement, advocacy and education.

  8. Ability to maintain and further develop competency as an injury and/or violence prevention professional.

  9. Demonstrate the knowledge, skills and best practices necessary to address at least one specific injury and/or violence topic (e.g. motor vehicle occupant injury, intimate partner violence, fire and burns, suicide, drowning, child injury, etc.) and be able to serve as a resource regarding that area.
