Description:

The National Violent Death System (NVDRS) Special Interest Group (SIG) will be hosting its first webinar to introduce injury prevention professionals and other partners to NVDRS. About NVDRS: Tragically, more than 38,000 people died by suicide in the United States in 2010. Homicide claimed another 16,000 people. We know these numbers can be lowered. To stop violent deaths, we must first understand all the facts.

 

Created in 2002, the NVDRS is a surveillance system that pulls together data on violent deaths in 18 states, including information about child maltreatment (or child abuse) fatalities, intimate partner homicides, other homicides, suicides, deaths where individuals are killed by law enforcement in the line of duty, unintentional firearm injury deaths, and deaths of undetermined intent.

 

This webinar provides:

— An overview of the CDC NVDRS and how it is currently utilized

— State examples of using NVDRS data and creating partnerships

— Example of academic and community partners using data

 

Continuing education credits are offered for this training for Safe States members. These include credits for individuals who are Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) and Certified in Public Health (CPH)
