The Florida Injury and Violence Prevention Advisory Council (FIVPAC) was appointed to provide advice and expertise to the department in the development and implementation of the State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP) and the 2017-2020 Florida Injury and Violence Prevention State Plan.

In the Summer of 2017, the Department of Health transitioned the Injury Prevention Program to the Violence and Injury Prevention Program. The Florida Injury Prevention Advisory Council (FIPAC), which developed the below comprehensive injury prevention plans in partnership with the Injury Prevention Program, adapted a new name, the Florida Violence and Injury Prevention Advisory Council to support the Department’s transition.

2014-2016 Injury Prevention State Plan

In partnership with the Florida Injury Prevention Advisory Council (FIPAC) and associated stakeholders, the Florida Department of Health Injury Prevention Section created the 2014-2016 Injury Prevention State Plan goals as a framework to strengthen statewide coordination and expansion of injury prevention activities in Florida as required by section 401.243, Florida Statutes. This is the third consecutive strategic plan created in collaboration with FIPAC members.

2014-2016 Injury Prevention Operational Plan

The 2014-2016 Florida Injury Prevention State Plan and 2014-2016 Injury Prevention Operational Plan consists of three goals and two initiatives, each implemented by a goal team or initiative workgroup. These are:
Goal 1: Establish a collaborative effort to provide statewide direction and focus for fall-related injury prevention for Florida’s older adults.
Goal 2: Establish a collaborative effort to provide statewide direction and focus for child drowning prevention and water safety.
Goal 3: Establish a collaborative effort to support statewide direction and focus to prevent motor vehicle crash-related injuries from distracted driving.

Initiative 1: Establish a sustainable infrastructure that provides leadership, funding, data, communication, policy, and evaluation for injury prevention.
Initiative 2: Provide education and awareness based on emerging injury data trends through partnerships and collaboration.

The Core Violence and Injury Prevention Program Grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides core capacity funding for state plan development and implementation through July 31, 2016. The Injury Prevention Section was one of 20 state health department injury prevention offices awarded the five-year Core Violence and Injury Prevention Program grant by the CDC. Implementation of the 2014-2016 Florida Injury Prevention State Plan will continue with this grant funding.

2009-2013 Florida Injury Prevention Strategic Plan

2009–2013 Florida Injury Prevention Strategic Plan Cover
The 2009–2013 Florida Injury Prevention Strategic Plan served as a successor to Florida’s 2004–2008 Injury Prevention Strategic Plan, which is considered nationally as a model state plan. Florida was the first state injury prevention program to complete the implementation of an existing five–year strategic plan while drafting a successor plan. Planning for the 2009–2013 Florida Injury Prevention Strategic Plan began in October 2007 and continued throughout 2008. During this time, the Injury Prevention Section, FIPAC and goal team members developed by consensus this plan’s vision and mission statements, plus five data–driven goals and the associated strategies.

2004-2008 Florida Injury Prevention Plan

The Office of Injury Prevention facilitated and coordinated the 2004-2008 Florida Injury Prevention Plan with injury prevention stakeholders and other state agencies. The Department of Health Office of Injury Prevention served as the lead agency in facilitation and coordinating the strategic planning meetings for more than 220 injury prevention advocates and community partners who worked together to develop this plan. This plan was the first Injury Prevention State Plan since the late 1980s. The plan includes mission and vision statements, as well as goals and strategies to address injury prevention.
