The PIV program supports research on intentional and unintentional injuries and on the diagnosis and treatment of acute forms of child maltreatment―including abusive head trauma, sexual abuse, and medical neglect. The program’s priorities include research on violence-related injuries and on the prevention, treatment, and medical outcomes of violence. PIV encourages basic research studies, intervention and treatment studies, efforts to develop new methods and measurement tools, clinical outcomes research focused on individuals, and work on population-level interventions.

Specific areas of interest include:

  • Pediatric injury, including accidental injuries and acute abusive injuries in the medical, social service, or judicial setting
  • Basic, clinical, and epidemiological studies elucidating risks for injury
  • Prevention of injuries, including falls, concussion, fire-related burns and inhalation injuries, drowning, poisoning, animal bites, motor vehicle injuries, and suicide
  • Emergency medical response to these injuries and follow-up services for suicidal or self-injurious children and adolescents and their family members
  • Early detection and accuracy of diagnosis in all acute forms of child abuse and/or neglect Prevention and treatment of violence-related injuries, including those associated with sexual assault and the use of firearms
  • Studies of global violence against children and effective prevention and treatment programs
  • Dissemination and implementation studies on violence prevention
  • Training and career development in child maltreatment research
