Mission and Vision
Mission: To prevent injuries in Ohio using data and collaborative partnerships.
Vision: Working together to create a safe and injury free Ohio.
Goal 1: Improve networking, communication and collaboration among injury/violence-related data owners and key stakeholders.
- Explore statewide injury-related data sources by reviewing survey results and asking data owners to provide an overview for DAG members.
- Make recommendations to the Ohio Department of Health Violence and Injury Prevention Section about new data products.
Goal 2: Assess the quality and availability of existing data sources and opportunities for linkages or shared data products.
- Inventory existing injury/violence-related data products and create a resource list for stakeholders.
- Assess Ohio Injury Prevention Partnership (OIPP) needs surrounding violence and injury prevention priority areas (i.e., prescription drug poisoning/overdose, falls among older adults, child injury including motor vehicle traffic, asphyxiation, falls and violence) and the availability of related state and local data sources.
- Increase the quality and availability of statewide and county-specific injury-related data for planning, surveillance and evaluation.
- Provide updates to OIPP so that data informs priorities and prevention efforts.
Goal 3: Improve the availability and quality of existing violence and injury data sources through partnerships or linkages.
