Acute Care & Trauma Surgery / Surgical Critical Care

Injury Prevention

The Boston Medical Center Injury Prevention Center (IPC)

The Boston Medical Center (BMC) Injury Prevention Center (IPC) was created
in July 2010 with support from the Department of Emergency Medicine and
the Section of Acute Care & Trauma Surgery. Their joint investment reflects a commitment
to expand the missions of each to develop a viable, self-sustaining, long-term
institution for injury prevention research and practice.

The IPC was founded on the shared beliefs that:

  • Many of the injuries treated at BMC are preventable;
  • Treatment should include intervention to prevent subsequent injury;
  • Increasing evidence supports the effectiveness of ED-based brief behavioral
    interventions; and
  • BMC’s Emergency Medicine Department is positioned to become a
    nationwide leader in injury prevention research and intervention.

Our Mission

  • To conduct and facilitate research on the causes, treatment and prevention of unintentional and violence-related injury;
  • To promote collaboration across academic, research, clinical, practice and policymaking organizations relative to injury prevention;
  • To foster engagement in injury research and practice among students, clinicians and researchers through education, research and advocacy; and
  • To serve the people with programs, counseling and other resources for preventing injuries.

For more information about the IPC leadership team and faculty, as well as information related to IPC services, research and initiatives, please refer to our 2014-2015 Annual Report.
