APPLYING THE PUBLIC HEALTH APPROACH TO RECREATIONAL BOATING INJURY PREVENTION

 

WHEN: Four webinars held from September - November 2018 from 2:00 – 3:30 pm EST. Dates are September 25, October 23, October 29, November 8


WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE?
This webinar series will be relevant to those with a variety of experiences and/or years of service:

  • Professionals working in recreational boating injury prevention, other areas of injury prevention, and/or other areas of public health
  • Individuals anywhere along the spectrum of professional development – both those new to public health, injury prevention, and/or recreational boating injury prevention, as well as those who have been working for several years in these areas and want to further develop their competencies.

OVERVIEW:
In 2017, the Coast Guard counted 4,291 accidents that involved 658 deaths, 2,629 injuries and approximately $46 million dollars of damage to property as a result of recreational boating accidents. State recreational boating safety programs are responsible for the annual implementation of more than 95% of all boating safety expenditures nationwide – including boating law enforcement, boating safety education, public access, aids to navigation and a range of other boating safety services.


The National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) is committed to cultivating a boating public that is better prepared to engage in safer boating behavior, in part by assisting state boating safety agencies to become fluent in the public health approach to injury prevention. Nationally, NASBLA brings together state recreational boating safety agencies for standardization and reciprocity in public policy development, communicating strategies, coordination, information sharing, education, and training.


NASBLA has partnered with Safe States Alliance to present this four-part webinar series on the Public Health Approach to Injury Prevention, with a focus on recreational boating injuries. The series is organized by each of the key four steps in the Public Health Approach, with relevant Core Competencies for Injury and Violence Prevention mapped to each of these four steps. These Core Competencies can provide a road map for gaining or strengthening the essential knowledge, skills and behaviors needed to grow professionally, and strengthen the field and practice of injury and violence prevention, including recreational boating injury prevention.

 

Webinar 1 will set the stage for this series, providing an overview of the Public Health Approach, Injury
and Core Competencies. Webinars 2-4 will define the problem, help to identify risk and protective
factors in determining the causes of injury, share how to develop and test prevention strategies, and
explain how to communicate and create policy to ensure widespread adoption.


Each webinar also includes suggested background self-studies that participants can review before
the webinars, or explore further upon webinar completion. A list of resources is also provided for each
webinar.
