The Impact of injury control research centers : advancing the field of injury and violence prevention
  • Description:
    Injury Control Research Centers (ICRCs) engage universities and medical centers in a national effort to reduce the public health burden of injury and violence. They are a key component of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Center for Injury Prevention and Control’s (Injury Center) extramural research portfolio, complementing other work conducted and funded by the Injury Center which manages them. Since their inception in 1987, ICRCs have profoundly changed the landscape of the field of injury prevention and have reduced the occurrence of injury and violence across the nation. The strength of their core infrastructure and capacity, high level expertise, and their diverse partnerships have enabled ICRCs to make substantial contributions to both research and practice. By integrating their core areas of expertise—research, training, and outreach—they have had a greater impact than they would have had otherwise, conducting any of these activities alone. Their integrated capacity and purpose has positioned them at the forefront of the national response to the major public health problem of injury and violence. The effectiveness of the comprehensive research center model that underpins the ICRC program provides singular justification of the need for continued investment in the ICRC program.
