Molloy P. 1990 (ca.). Injury Prevention Implementation Incentive Grant: New England Network = New England Network to Prevent Childhood Injuries Incentive Grant [Final report]. Newton, MA: Education Development Center, 44 pp.
Annotation: The New England Network to Prevent Childhood Injuries Incentive Grant project worked with the region's six states to enhance decisionmakers' understanding of injury, foster improved media coverage of the problem, develop accurate and comprehensive state data sources, and build state capacity to address childhood injury in an ongoing program or unit. Program activities included development of publications, slide shows, and documents; and provision of technical assistance to states to enhance their injury prevention capacity. Major results were heightened understanding of the elements of institutionalizing injury prevention programs, products that successfully conveyed the extent and preventability of the childhood injury problem, and individual state accomplishments (e.g., formation of an injury prevention coalition, successful statewide conference on injury prevention, improved interdepartmental sharing of information and data).
