Brief Project Description: The program manager will oversee cross-site coordination of Life Outside Violence (LOV), the St-Louis Hospital-based Violence Intervention Program (HVIP). Hospitals are well positioned to interrupt the cycle of violence by intervening after individuals have survived a violent injury. LOV is a collaboration between four level I trauma hospitals in the St. Louis region, and their affiliated universities that provide the majority of violent injury related care. LOVâ™s mission is to promote positive alternatives among individuals injured by violence in order to promote healing and safety, and reduce retaliation, criminal involvement, re-injury, and death. Case managers engage with victims of violence to develop plans that focus on client needs through evidence-based interventions to reduce likelihood of re-injury. The program manager position will be housed at the Institute for Public Health at Washington University in St. Louis and report directly to the Instituteâ™s Associate Director. The position will also work closely with an established multidisciplinary team across WUSTL, the Instituteâ™s Public Health Data and Training Center, and LOV affiliate organizations to expand the LOV program and the research focused on violent injury at Washington University and other partner institutions.
