Background:

Firearms are often a factor in both self-directed and interpersonal violencerelated deaths and injuries, and understanding more about the relationship between firearms and violence is essential to improving population health and safety. 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 violence to guide effective prevention strategies.

Evaluating the effectiveness of interventions to prevent gun-related violence, including those likely to have the greatest public health impact.

This workshop will invite stakeholders to provide input on potential themes of a research agenda that will examine how to prevent gun violence, including firearm 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 associated 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 impact and research questions that can shed light on the characteristics of gun violence 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.

In 2010, more than 105,000 people were injured or killed in the United States as the result of a firearm-related incident. Recent, highly publicized, tragic mass shootings in Newtown, CT; Aurora, CO; Oak Creek, WI; and Tucson, AZ, have sharpened the American public's interest in protecting our children and communities from the harmful effects of firearm violence. While many Americans legally use firearms for a variety of activities, fatal and nonfatal firearm violence poses a serious threat to public safety and welfare.

In January 2013, President Barack Obama issued 23 executive orders directing federal agencies to improve knowledge of the causes of firearm violence, what might help prevent it, and how to minimize its burden on public health. One of these orders directed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to, along with other federal agencies, immediately begin identifying the most pressing problems in firearm violence research. The CDC and the CDC Foundation asked the IOM, in collaboration with the National Research Council, to convene a committee tasked with developing a potential research agenda that focuses on the causes of, possible interventions to, and strategies to minimize the burden of firearm-related violence. Priorities for Research to Reduce the Threat of Firearm-Related Violence focuses on the characteristics of firearm violence, risk and protective factors, interventions and strategies, the impact of gun safety technology, and the influence of video games and other media.
