Injury Prevention for Children & Teens

The University of Michigan Injury Prevention Center's massive open online course (MOOC) in child and adolescent injury prevention is a great training and educational resource. This MOOC (Injury Prevention for Children and Teens) is the nation’s most comprehensive online course for pediatric injury prevention. Across 59 video learning segments that are grouped into modular themes, and taught by a multidisciplinary panel of 25 nationally-recognized injury prevention experts, learners gain new skills to improve clinical practice, support families and their communities, and learn detailed strategies and techniques to apply best injury prevention practices. Individuals may progress through a self-paced course to advance their current knowledge or earn certification for completing content and assessments in one or more of the modules that include segments on the prevention of opioid overdose, ACEs, concussion, youth violence, dating violence, suicide, transportation safety, burn prevention, and across unintentional and intentional injury foundations. Learners have the ability to select all modules or individual topics that are of most interest. 25.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ are available for learners who qualify.

 

You can register for the course at https://www.edx.org/course/injury-prevention-for-children-teens. It is free and open to anyone. Share this with your other public health partners and interns.
