"2 Perspectives, 1 Mission: Intersecting Injury Prevention Practice & Research"
Injury and Violence Prevention Professionals and Researchers work towards the same goal of preventing injury in our communities. However, the approach taken and the language used to reach this outcome can vary greatly dependent on your perspective.
This presentation will focus on examining the cross-roads of these approaches and understanding how to translate the needs of each group for one another in order to form more effective partnerships, improve research and overall IVP programming.
