Clinical Trial

A Multicenter Pilot Study to Evaluate Intermediate Health and Social Outcomes in Hospital-Based Violence Intervention Programs

The purpose of the research is to understand if victims of violence who participate in Hospital-Based Violence Intervention Programs (HVIPs) have better health and social outcomes than victims of violence who do not participate in HVIPs. Specific aim is to develop a multicenter trial allowing large-scale input of prospective, observational information from both centers with HVIPs and centers without HVIPs, creating a cohort of participants and non-participants and comparing early health and social outcomes among participants and non-participants. The hypothesize is that patients who participate in an HVIP program after suffering a gunshot wound, stab wound, or physical/sexual assault will demonstrate an improved social determinants profile and will have engaged in more community-based programming than patients who do not participate in HVIPs six months after the violent event. We will create a registry database.
