Hospital-Based Violence Intervention Programs
A Critical Research Initiative
Violence prevention and intervention programs are being developed in a number of hospitals across the country. By identifying and providing targeted counseling and support at the bedside, the chances of retaliation and recidivism are reduced significantly. QuesGen started working with the team at the San Francisco Injury Prevention Center to manage the data about clients in the program.
The system provides tools for understanding the number of cases screened, enrolled, and addressed, but also provides a web-based application that supports the day-to-day case management. QuesGen supports the National Network of Hospital-based Violence Intervention Programs (NNHVIP) and is working with leadership to develop a registry and comprehensive way to develop, implement and assess the operations of violence prevention programs throughout the country.
The National Network of Hospital-based Violence Intervention Programs (NNHVIP) provides a forum and an annual meeting that allows leaders in violence prevention to share knowledge, develop best practices, collaborate on research, affect policy change, and more.
If you are developing a violence intervention program in your institution, want to provide data into the NNHVIP registry or just want to learn more, please call us at 650-777-7617. We look forward to hearing from you.
