New Online Training: Safe at Every Stage from Northwest Center for Public Health

For injury and violence prevention advocates, it can be challenging to choose the most effective ways to keep children and adolescents safe from harm. NWCPHP’s newest online course, Safe at Every Stage: Injury and Violence Prevention and the Developing Brain, helps advocates combine neuroscience research, basic data use skills, and collaboration strategies to guide prevention efforts for different ages in their regions.

As young people grow up, their injury risks change with each stage of brain development, from infancy through early adulthood. So do the factors that help keep them safe and resilient. With so much at stake, and finite resources available, public health professionals can use research about injury risk and brain development to help them understand data and set priorities for action.

This three-part course is available at no cost and is intended for public health and health care professionals, safety advocates, and public health students. Visit Safe at Every Stage: Injury and Violence Prevention and the Developing Brain to start learning today.
