Action Plans and Annual Reports

The key to the implementation success of the 2015 Florida Injury Prevention state Plan is the development and use of annual action plans. These action plans, based on the state plan, are developed by the Injury Prevention Section and the Florida Injury Prevention Advisory Council (FIPAC), goal team leaders and teams. At each FIPAC meeting, the goal teams meet and collaborate on plan implementation. The action plans are reviewed and revised as necessary. The action plans allow accountability for implementation throughout the strategic plan process.

To view the annual action plans, please see the Reports and Publications page.
