This opportunity provides funding to develop and evaluate firearm injury primary prevention interventions that capitalize on community healthcare settings to identify risk factors; reduce exposure risk in individuals, families, and populations; prevent injury or reoccurrence of injury; and mitigate disparities.

Examples of projects include:

  • Testing effectiveness of a universal screening approach in community healthcare settings to identify at-risk individuals, families, and populations where they live, learn, work, play, worship, and age
  • Adapting and testing prevention approaches found to be effective in addressing other public health challenges and that have been successfully integrated into practice, such as those addressing seat belt use, smoking cessation, risk factors for alcohol abuse, breast cancer screenings, and others, in a way that normalizes primary prevention of firearm injury
  • Interventions on social determinants of health or social needs to prevent firearm injuries and reduce disparities
  • Testing how social determinants of health or social needs modify the effectiveness of interventions, their implementation in routine practice, or their sustainability
  • Implementation/effectiveness and/or pragmatic trials focusing on multi-level interventions, and sustainability of the intervention
  • Developing and testing integrated models of preventive care that span healthcare to community settings
  • Implementation of firearm safety screening in mental health, alcohol- and/or substance-use disorder clinics
  • Natural experiments studying the effects of a firearm injury prevention program implemented in a school district
