This webinar is hosted in preparation for disseminating the ECHV (MIECHV) Injury Special Emphasis Report Guidance Document at the Core VIPP Grantees Pre-conference Meeting in May. Participants will hear about the transition of the ECHV (MIECHV) Injury Special Emphasis Report envisioned at the time of the writing of CDC-RFA-CE11-1101 to the present vision. They are also be provided with an informational overview of the process that the Surveillance Quality Improvement (SQI) States have conducted in order to develop the ECHV (MIECHV) Report Guidance.


While the production of an ECHV (MIECHV) Injury Special Emphasis Report is a required function of the CDC-RFA-CE11-1101 grantees, it has utility for all states interested in producing a childhood injury report. The Special Emphasis Report Guidance will be made available to all states at the 2012 Joint Annual Meeting of the Safe States Alliance & CDC Core Violence and Injury Prevention Program.
