TRAINING & TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE

 

Knowledgeable staff members are essential for a state injury and violence prevention (IVP) program to function effectively and sustainably. State IVP staff must keep their own skills and knowledge current, while also providing practical training and technical assistance to other professionals, students, and the general public. Trainings — whether conducted on the job, virtually, or in classroom settings — should address both foundational and advanced skill-building in the principles, practices, and competencies necessary to successfully conduct IVP activities. 

  • Forty state IVP programs (98%) provided some form of training or technical assistance to partners, grantees, and others engaged in prevention efforts in 2015.
  • State IVP programs used a variety of methods to deliver technical assistance and training to program partners (Figure 21) – most commonly conducting in-person trainings (90%) and responding to requests for technical assistance (78%)
  • The topics for which states were most often providing TA include program strategies and interventions (76%) and data collection, analysis, reporting, and quality improvement (63%).
  • The topics for which states were most often receiving TA include data collection, analysis, reporting, and quality improvement (76%) and evaluation methods and processes (73%).
