Initiatives from the Children's Safety Network

The Children’s Safety Network (CSN) is a unique group of four resource centers working to assist states, communities, and others to prevent child and adolescent injuries. CSN consists of a lead resource center that provides training and technical assistance with childhood unintentional injury and violence prevention efforts; a center that assists with data needs of childhood injury; a center that examines the economic and insurance issues associated with childhood injury; and a center that focuses on rural childhood injury and violence. CSN’s four national resource centers work closely with state and local public health departments, especially maternal and child health agencies, helping them analyze injury data, implement and evaluate programs, and collaborate with others in the field. The presentation will examine strategies used by the network to provide information, training, and technical assistance for the development of new injury and violence prevention programs, and to enhance and support existing efforts. The strategies include addressing MCH Title V performance measures, review of youth suicide prevention activities in state agencies, data sharing approaches though the Internet, opportunities for injury prevention in managed care organizations, and training rural health and education professionals in injury prevention. The Children’s Safety Network (CSN) is funded by the federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
