Systems Thinking for Injury and Violence Prevention Practice Webinar
Presented by National Peer Learning Team for Systems Thinking at the North Carolina Division of Public Health Injury and Violence Prevention Branch; and the Collaborative Sciences Center for Road Safety at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
December 18, 2018 | 3:00 - 4:30 PM EST
Participants will learn from professionals in the injury prevention, highway safety, and human development fields about how a systems approach can enhance injury prevention practice. Panelists will discuss their views on systems allowing participants to look into the “fishbowl” to hear a conversation about how panelists understand the idea of systems and how it is being developed and applied. This interactive discussion serves as an introduction for those who are curious about systems, as well as an invitation for those who would like to participate in a deeper learning process.
After the webinar, for those interested in taking a deeper dive, information about joining a learning community will be provided to registered participants.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) funds five Core State Violence and Injury Prevention (CORE SVIPP) states: Massachusetts, Maryland, North Carolina, Colorado, and Washington, to lead the Regional Network Collaborating Organization (RNCO) efforts. The purpose of the RNCOs is to provide coordination across all states and with injury and violence prevention (IVP) organizations to share scientific evidence and programmatic best practices. RNCOs conduct regional activities, such as peer to peer networking, mentoring, and training. Each RNCO also coordinates a National Peer Learning Team (NPLT) to connect partners across the country to focus on a specific topic area related to injury and violence prevention: child abuse and neglect, sexual and intimate partner violence, motor vehicle crash injury prevention, traumatic brain injury and systems thinking.
