About the STAT Program | Apply for a STAT Visit

Safe States Alliance's State Technical Assessment Team (STAT) Program is designed to assist state health departments in developing and enhancing injury and violence prevention programs. STAT brings an expert team of injury and violence prevention professionals into states to assess the status of a state health department's injury and violence prevention program and to make constructive recommendations for improvement based on current status and STAT Standards and Indicators.

The team produces a report providing feedback and recommendations to the state. The assessment often serves to refocus the state by requiring participating states to reflect on their strengths, weaknesses and opportunities. STAT brings different members of the injury prevention community together and allows individuals to share ideas for program development. It also provides an outside perspective with important information and recommendations for action, which is often critical to moving forward a state agenda. In addition, the STAT experience provides team participants with the opportunity to learn about another state’s program and ultimately to share barriers encountered and successful strategies among state programs.

Each STAT typically consists of six members -- a team leader, four team members, and a logistics coordinator. One team member will also serve as the deputy team leader. Occasionally, an observer may be selected to attend the STAT review as well. The team leader will be a Safe States Alliance voting representative or a former injury prevention program manager. Ideally, at least two team members will have participated in a prior STAT visit. Several factors are considered in selecting team members including: completed team member application, expertise in at least one core component area, prior STAT experience, communication and writing skills, and availability. Team members must be able to synthesize information and write concisely and quickly. Travel and per diem expenses for team members are covered by Safe States Alliance and/or the host state. Preference will be given to Safe States Alliance members and members of partner organizations and agencies. STAT teams will be selected after the STAT host states have been identified.
