Project Patience: An Injury and Violence Prevention Education Toolkit

In 2018, the Virginia Department of Health Injury and Violence Prevention Program developed Project Patience, an injury and violence prevention education video series and technical assistance initiative, designed to provide maternity setting and community-based programs that care for newborn and infant families with resources to help families reduce childhood related injuries.

As our statewide response to COVID-19 continues to evolve, it is important for our division to be responsive to the virtual training needs of our stakeholders across the Commonwealth. Due to the demands on health systems, families, and community programs during our statewide response, we are transitioning from in person instruction to virtual for hospitals and are working to create a repository of references that will helpful in educating families.
