Module 2: Evidence-Based and Promising Unintentional Injury Prevention Program Models

Rural communities are implementing evidence-based and promising programs to prevent different forms of unintentional injuries. Many communities may choose to implement several different models to address specific types of injury prevention and choose to adapt program models to meet the needs of their community. This toolkit identifies models and approaches for preventing several types of unintentional injury, including poisoning, motor vehicle and traffic crashes, falls, drowning, fires and burns, infant suffocation, and unintentional firearm injuries.

To learn how to identify and adapt interventions, see Developing a Rural Community Health Program in the Rural Community Health Toolkit.

This toolkit presents 25 evidence-based or promising approaches for preventing unintentional injuries, organized into 7 categories that address many of the leading causes of unintentional injury in rural communities.
