Learning Objectives
A systems approach can help us solve some of our most difficult and complex injury issues. For this initiative, we define a systems approach as developing skills to better understand complexity, systems mapping, understanding feedback loops, identifying high leverage systems drivers, and developing inquiry skills to expose our hidden assumptions and biases. This approach demands crossing boundaries between departments and functions in an organization, between disciplines, and between researchers and practitioners. It calls for breaching barriers of culture and class, and listening with respect and empathy to others. As we develop and hone these skills, we will be better prepared to effectively address our greatest challenges. In this session participants will learn basic concepts involved in a systems approach to injury prevention and how the project will unfold as it seeks to build capacity for injury prevention professionals to use systems approaches in their work.
