Viewing Resource: American Trauma Society: Injury Prevention Coordinator’s Course

Resource Overview

Throughout the U.S., unintentional injury continues to be a leading cause of death and disability for all age groups. Hundreds of thousands of individuals are affected by injury or injury-related deaths each year. Evidence shows that effective prevention programs and strategies work to reduce these statistics. The ATS Injury Prevention Coordinator’s Course (IPCC) is geared towards establishing and developing a formal hospital based, multi-faceted injury prevention program.

This 2-day course was developed by seasoned injury prevention professionals across the country and is designed to cover 14 chapters on injury and data analysis, education, program development, advocacy, promotion, and more!

The IPCC is offered multiple times a year in varying locations across the country. If you or your organization is interested in hosting a course at your facility, please contact the ATS Education Department at education@amtrauma.org.
