Interprofessional Studies on Injury Prevention & Control Educational Modules for UW Faculty & Students

The Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center is now offering a series of free educational modules for University of Washington students and faculty. This short, interprofessional curriculum seeks to close gaps in the existing injury control content at UW and supplement existing classes or work in public health and the health sciences. Each module is developed to reflect regional and local population health needs and provide an introduction to injury control science. The content is designed for both undergraduate and graduate students at the UW. Each module includes lectures from leaders in injury control ideal for supplemental use in related courses.

Modules can be imported together or individually into existing Canvas courses. Students can also individually access these modules at

Please contact curriculum coordinator at for more information, to enroll students or to import a module into your Canvas classroom.


The Teaching with Simulation Lessons and Point-of-Care Ultrasound Lessons were developed with funding from a Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) faculty development grant: Integrated Technology into Nursing Education & Practice Initiative (ITNEP) (Grant U1KHP09543). Principal Investigators: Brenda K. Zierler, PhD, RN, FAAN (University of Washington), Suzan Kardong-Edgren, PhD, RN (Washington State University), Erin Pringle, MS, RN (University of Alaska-Anchorage), Glenna Burg, MS, RN (Montana State University), and Robin E. Pattillo, PhD, MEd, RN (Idaho State University).

The Interprofessional Studies on Injury Prevention and Control curricula were developed by injury control specialists at Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center with funding from the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation.
