Webinar: Systems Thinking for Injury and Violence Prevention Practice

December 18, 3:00 – 4:30 PM Eastern
Register here

Presented by CSCRS and the National Peer Learning Team for Systems Thinking at the North Carolina Division of Public Health Injury and Violence Prevention Branch

In this presentation 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. The discussion will revolve around these questions:

  • How can systems enhance current injury prevention work?
  • What are the tools and methods available to do systems thinking work?
  • What does it look like when we use a systems approach in our practice settings?

After the webinar, for those interested in taking a deeper dive, information about joining a learning community will be provided to registered participants. The presentation will be recorded and available to those who are unable to participate live. Register for the webinar here.
