1.) TEACH-VIP - "is a comprehensive injury prevention and control curriculum which has been developed through the efforts of WHO and a network of global injury prevention experts. Currently, the most recent version of TEACH-VIP is TEACH-VIP 2, which is a second iteration of the training materials since the launch of TEACH-VIP in 2005.
The course material is designed around a classroom instruction model, with PowerPoint slide presentations and supporting lecture notes which address a wide variety of topics relevant to injury prevention and control. WHO makes this training material freely available for settings wishing to provide instruction in the area of injury prevention. The training materials and a variety of other capacity building resources for TEACH-VIP 2 are available in CD-ROM format and are supported by a 32-page users' manual. The actual training materials are structured around 67 lessons, each lesson taking approximately one hour of classroom time to teach."
2.) VIP Short Courses- VIP short courses provide a complete training resource, each addressing a specific injury or violence area. They have been designed to provide facilitators around the world with everything they need to conduct a short course of 2-5 days on various topics. These "trainings in a box" can be downloaded from our website free of charge.
Each short course follows the same modular format and contains:
The facilitators should take the time to read and study the facilitator's guide carefully. The training material and case examples can be adapted to the local injury context. The courses have been developed on the basis of a wide range of WHO materials and more courses will be developed in the future.
In order to make downloading the courses easier the components of each course have been grouped into various parts and zipped. It is important to download all parts of a given course to have the entire set of modules needed.
