Annotation

The Roundtable on Population Health Improvement held a one-day public workshop exploring trauma-informed approaches to community violence through a health equity lens. Participants at this workshop explored the impacts of trauma and violence on communities and explore approaches that communities and multisector partners are using to prevent violence and build safe, resilient, and healthy communities. Approaches considered included hospital and health system violence intervention programs and trauma-informed policing. Participants explored the evidence base for the effectiveness of these strategies and approaches for reducing violence in communities. The workshop showcased examples that can serve as models in different sectors and communities and share lessons learned in new and compelling ways. The welcome video is 14 minutes long.
