The National Network of Hospital-based Violence Intervention Programs (NNHVIP) brings together the best and most exciting programs to share knowledge, develop best practices, collaborate on research, affect policy change, and more. Their mission is to strengthen existing hospital-based violence intervention programs and help develop similar programs in communities across the country.
All programs on this website are dedicated to engaging patients during the window of opportunity when they are recovering in the hospital after a violent injury, to reduce the chance of retaliation and recurrence. Network members collaborate in research and evaluation, explore opportunities for funding sustainability, develop and share best practices, and identify ways to collectively have an impact on policy.
Collectively, network members have created the Key Components of Hospital-based Violence Intervention Handbook, which details some of their insights and recommended strategies.
