Session: Violence Prevention in Families and Communities
3296.0: Monday, December 12, 2005: 2:30 PM-4:00 PM
Violence Prevention in Families and Communities
Good data are essential to identifying familial and community-based violence and to developing programs and policies to prevent these forms of violence. This session provides three presentations on collecting data to assess and screen for violence and two presentations on using data to develop policies that address violence in the community.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the session, the participant (learner) in this session will be able to: 1. differentiate clinical versus statistical significance in using program evaluation outcomes to identify the most important elements for program change; 2. use data from screening assessment tools and death reviews to improve violence prevention programs; and 3. use data to identify risk factors for familial child maltreatment and exposure to violence.
