Given the scarcity of resources and competing issues in the public health injury prevention and traffic safety communities, practitioners can have the biggest impact by collaboratively applying evidence-based strategies to traffic safety challenges that also address shared risk or protective factors. Safe States convened a Behavioral Health Workgroup comprised of key subject matter experts from federal, state, and local agencies, national organizations, and the research community. The Workgroup contributed to the development of recommendations for applying a shared risk and protective factors approach to reduce risky driving behavior, identifying interventions that can address risk and protective factors to prevent motor vehicle-related injuries and fatalities, and utilizing data resources to measure the impact of strategies.
By the end of his webinar, participants will be able to:
1-Understand the process involved in collaborating across public health, traffic safety, and research communities
2-Identify key recommendations for: applying the shared risk and protective factors approach to reduce risky driving behavior, identifying interventions that can address these risk and protective factors to prevent motor vehicle-related injuries and fatalities, and utilizing data resources to measure the impact of these strategies
3-Apply public health concepts to traffic safety initiatives to reduce motor vehicle-related injuries and fatalities,
4 -Use the new recommendations to apply a shared risk and protective factors approach to driver safety initiatives, with an emphasis on implementing behavior change interventions or strategies in local communities
