Pediatric Collections: Firearm-Related Injuries and Preventions

Accidents are the leading cause of death for children outside of the neonatal period, which means that pediatricians have long advocated for programs and interventions to protect children from accidental injury. Promoting appropriate usage of car seats and seat belts has been a public health intervention successfully promoted by large numbers of pediatricians. Remarkably, childhood death and injury from gun violence rivaled the morbidity and mortality due to motor vehicle crashes in the United States in 2014. To help you better understand the public health impact of firearms on children, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is now bringing together published articles in one custom collection, giving you quick access to a compendium of studies on this important topic.
