Community and State Resource Meetings (Resource Meetings) were initially developed by the 2009–2013 Florida Injury Prevention Advisory Council, Goal Team 2 (Strategy 2B). Two pilot meetings where held; one in an urban region, Miami, and one in a rural region, the six rural counties served by the Tampa Poison Control Center.
The purpose of the Resource Meetings are to bring together the local injury prevention community to share information and to promote networking and collaboration between injury prevention organizations. It provides an opportunity for local organizations to share what they are doing within the community and to get to know the Florida Department of Health, Injury Prevention Program and how the state program can help further local injury prevention activities.
The goal of this toolkit is to provide reources for individuals and organizations that want to host a local Resource Meeting. The toolkit is comprised of information, planning documents, and resources developed during the two pilot Resource Meetings in Miami and Sebring, Florida.
Towards the creation of a statewide injury prevention activity tracking tool (Strategy 2E), Goal Team 2 formalized definitions for the following terms: activity, project and program. Use of the definitions will enable all of the injury prevention community to utilize the same language when describing their efforts and allow a better understanding of the level of each effort. Common definitions will also enable the injury prevention community to evaluate like efforts.
In 2009, the Injury Prevention Inventory Survey was developed by the Florida Injury Prevention Advisory Council, Goal Team 2 as strategy of the 2009–2013 Florida Injury Prevention Strategic Plan (Strategy 2D). The purpose of the survey is to determine of the number of organizations and agencies involved in injury prevention activities throughout the state, as well as to serve as a resource for contacts in the injury prevention community. The survey was finalized in December 2009 as a portion of the Injury Prevention brochure and is available online.
