Description: NIH Behavioral and Social Sciences Research Lecture Series (BSSR) Sponsored by the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research, Office of the Director, NIH

Abstract: Injuries, unintentional and violent, are the leading cause of death from ages 1 to 44 and they are the second most costly health problem in America. Prevention research in the injury field has matured over the last few decades and results offer optimism for reducing this toll in the future. This talk will provide an overview of the field, its history of accomplishments, as well as the challenges and opportunities that face it in the future. An emphasis will be placed on prevention research of particular relevance to the NIH mission and institutes, with examples drawn from injuries that affect the population across the lifespan.

Bio: Dr. Gielen’s research interests are in the development and evaluation of community and clinic-based programs that address health behavior problems affecting women and children, primarily among low-income families in urban areas. The application of behavioral sciences to childhood injury control and domestic violence prevention programs, and the relationship between violence and HIV risk are areas of special focus. Childhood injury problems of particular interest are fires, burns, CO poisoning, and motor vehicle crashes. Dr. Gielen’s current research focuses on the use of computers for patient and public safety education; community interventions to improve home safety; translation research to disseminate proven injury prevention interventions; the impact of housing conditions on child safety; and stage tailored clinical interventions for survivors of domestic violence living with or at risk for HIV/AIDS.
