The Surveillance to Optimize Prevention of Injury (STOP Injury) Project is funded by a five-year grant from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This project supports the integration of injury data findings with the development and evaluation of prevention initiatives. It also aims to bring together private and public sector leaders in injury prevention efforts to advocate, market, and promote ongoing and sustainable resources for injury prevention and control programs. Central to STOP Injury's mission is implementation of the state's Injury Prevention Plan.
STOP Injury is a joint project with the Injury Surveillance and works with it on injury surveillance issues. To learn more about the Injury Surveillance Program, call (617) 624-5648.
The Massachusetts Prevent Injuries Now! Network (MassPINN) is a coalition of private and public sector partners with a mutual interest in injury prevention and surveillance. The group's goal is to provide networking opportunities, information, and data-sharing, and to raise public awareness of unintentional injury as a public health priority.
The Massachusetts Falls Prevention Coalition was founded by the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts, Massachusetts Visiting Nurses Association, and the Massachusetts Extended Care Federation. With more than 40 members, the mission and vision of the group is to reduce the incidence and severity of falls and fall-related injuries among older adults in Massachusetts. For more information about the MA Falls Prevention Coalition, contact Irene Villard at (617) 624-5544 or email@example.com.
