Statement of Task

An ad hoc planning committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will host a 1-day public workshop to be conducted jointly with Northwell Health and PEACE Initiative. The workshop will bring together firearm injury prevention thought leaders to explore how hospitals, health systems, and the health care industry at large can integrate interventions for firearm injury prevention into routine care for the purpose of improving the health and safety of patients and communities.

The workshop will explore a broad range of topics including:

  • The state of evidence on health care strategies to reduce firearm injury and mortality
  • Barriers to implementing health care strategies:
    • Patient/survivor perceptions and barriers to discussing firearm injury prevention with clinical team members
    • Provider perspectives
  • Factors that facilitate the implementation of health care strategies
  • How to adapt and implement public health and harm-reduction strategies across a variety of health care settings (emergency departments, surgery, primary care settings)
  • The need for diverse perspectives in shaping health care firearm injury harm-reduction strategies:
    • Patient/survivors
    • Owners of firearms
    • Community-based voices (community-based organizations)

The staggering number of deaths and emergency department visits caused by firearm injuries has only grown with time. Costs associated with firearm related injuries amount to over a billion dollars annually in the United States alone, not including physician charges and postdischarge costs.

To address this epidemic, in April of 2022, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine's Board on Population Health and Public Health Practice, in collaboration with Northwell Heath and the PEACE Initiative, brought together firearm injury prevention thought leaders to explore how health systems can integrate interventions for firearm injury prevention into routine care for the purpose of improving the health of patients and communities. The workshop speakers discussed strategies for firearm injury and mortality prevention and its integration into routine care. Speakers also explored facilitators and barriers to implementation strategies, and how health systems might work to overcome those barriers.
