This document provides guidance to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-funded state health departments about their important role in informing and evaluating policy to prevent injuries and violence through active participation in the policy process.
These reports compile injury data voluntarily collected by state health departments. It consolidates data from hospital records, death certificates, and several national surveillance systems and provides the rates of various injuries and related factors. Findings presented can help states determine their individual injury prevention program priorities; identify prevention needs; and can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of program activities and problems that require further investigation.
This fact sheet addresses the importance of collaboration between Injury Control Research Centers and health departments. It covers topics such as initiating collaboration and minimizing challenges through collaboration. This fact sheet is based on information presented at CDC’s 2005 Annual Program Development and Surveillance Team Grantees Meeting.
This brochure addresses many topics to help state health departments and their partner build upon the methods and experiences of other Core State Injury Programs and identifies barriers and solutions to conducting an injury prevention program. It is a compilation of information submitted by state grantees regarding lessons learned over a five-year period (2000–2005).
This document presents examples of how state health departments are achieving results in preventing injuries and violence in their populations. It contains one prevention and impact example from each state. Collectively, the examples illustrate the many issues faced by state health departments in injury and violence prevention, and show the equally multifaceted responses for such public health problems. This document was developed by the State and Territorial Injury Prevention Directors Association (STIPDA) and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) through the support of CDC. (This document is available online at www.safestates.org and at www.astho.org.)
This booklet illustrates how state injury programs have successfully used CDC-funded, PHISP program injury surveillance data and prevention infrastructure to build capacity, foster collaboration, and implement interventions designed to lessen their burden of injury.
State of the States provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive information about the structure, organization, people, resources, and work of state injury and violence prevention programs. This report is intended to provide an update of comprehensive national data on the status of state injury and violence prevention programs; build on the information collected since 2005 to describe changes in state injury and violence prevention programs over time; and highlight achievements of injury and violence prevention programs. It was developed by Safe States Alliance through the support of CDC.
