Programs

FALLS PREVENTION FOR OLDER ADULTS

The Oregon Fall Prevention Program aims to reduce senior falls by linking clinical practice to evidence-based fall prevention programs in the community.

OREGON NATIONAL VIOLENT DEATH REPORTING SYSTEM (NVDRS)

The NVDRS collects information from many data sources and compiles incident-based cases for all violent deaths in Oregon in order to generate public health information on violent deaths and to develop violence prevention strategies.

OREGON PRESCRIPTION DRUG MONITORING PROGRAM (PDMP)

The Oregon Prescription Drug Monitoring Program helps health care providers and pharmacists provide patients better care in managing their prescriptions.

SAFE KIDS PROGRAM

Uniting public and private organizations including emergency responders, law enforcement, health and safety professionals as well as interested citizens to reduce unintentional preventable injury and death in Oregon's children ages 0 to 14.

TRAUMA REGISTRY

Oregon Trauma Registry conducts systemic data collection from 44 trauma hospitals in Oregon to identify the causes of traumatic injury and recommend prevention activities, and assure timely, quality treatment, education, prevention and research.

This systemic tracking of trauma care in Oregon is critical to identify which patients are receiving care in the system, assess the level of care received, and track outcomes of patients in order to ensure high-quality trauma care throughout the state.

YOUTH SUICIDE PREVENTION PROGRAM

Oregon has developed a plan for communities to use to reduce youth suicide. The strategies require a commitment to partnership and shared responsibility among state agencies, between state and local governments, and between public and private sectors.
