Critical information is needed to improve our understanding of how best to prevent firearm-related violence and its consequences, including  Conducting research to identify risks and protective factors for gun vio- lence to guide effective prevention strategies.  Evaluating the effectiveness of interventions to prevent gun-related vio- lence, including those likely to have the greatest public health impact.

APPENDIX B 91 This workshop will invite stakeholders to provide input on potential themes of a research agenda that will examine how to prevent gun violence, including fire- arm homicides, suicides, and nonfatal injuries, the interventions and prevention strategies that are currently used and that need to be evaluated as well as new and innovative strategies, and the variety of risk and protective factors associat- ed with firearms. The proposed agenda should identify research questions that can be answered in the short term that can lead to the greatest public health im- pact and research questions that can shed light on the characteristics of gun vio- lence and the potential to prevent gun violence. Meeting Objectives: The workshop will seek to explore potential research topics in the following five areas: (1) characteristics of gun violence, (2) interventions and strategies, (3) technology, (4) video games and other media, and (5) risk and protective factors. Identified research topics should be those that can be answered in the short term and those that can lead to the greatest public health impact.
