E2024 TIEP Module 1: Hospital-Based Violence Intervention Programs

Hospital violence intervention programs (HVIPs) embrace a public health approach to violence prevention and are grounded in data that indicates victims of interpersonal violence are at elevated risk for reinjury and are susceptible to engaging in retaliatory violence as a “natural” response borne out of societal pressure. Moreover, HVIPs acknowledge the well-documented impact of violent trauma on one’s emotional, mental, and physical wellbeing. HVIPs provide targeted services to a high-risk population and work to identify and reduce risk factors, such as substance misuse, unemployment, and school dropout while promoting protective factors, such as social support, and educational attainment. This module focuses on HVIPs and how they are utilized in trauma centers.
