Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2004, $300,000)

This project is designed to develop a prototype Violence Intervention and Prevention Program (VIPP). This proposal is for the third year of a 3 year development project. Developing a successful violence prevention strategy requires an understanding of the knowledge, attitudes and beliefs of stakeholders: patients and families, primary care physicians, and public health experts. This information, as provided in VIPP, will allow health professionals to offer scientifically based and culturally sensitive advice to care givers around violence prevention. This award is NCA/NCF.
