3214.0 Violence Epidemiology

Monday, November 5, 2007: 12:30 PM
This interesting session will focus on the epidemiology of violence. Presentations will include a discussion of implications associated with using national data to address state and local violence-related issues, violent death associated with specific HLA haplotypes, gender disparities in self-reported fear of an intimate partner, the use of multiple data sources to inform violence against women policy and prevention efforts, and gender-specific mental and behavioral health outcomes among physically and sexually maltreated high-risk youths.
Session Objectives: At the conclusion of the session, the participant (learner) will be able to: 1. Describe the trend in state versus extrapolated national prevalence of sexual assault by method of data collection 2. Describe significant associations between specific HLA haplotypes and occurrence of violent death 3. Assess the association between early physical and sexual child maltreatment (EPS-CMT) and pre-adolescent/adolescent mental/behavioral problems in a high-risk youth population 4. Describe the prevalence of reported fear of an intimate partner among both women and men in diverse, urban populations 5. Identify state-based violence against women data sources
