It is an overarching program that focuses on providing the necessary resources for various injury prevention efforts around Georgia. GaIPP’s vision is to find a way for "injuries and their burdens to be fully minimized by empowering state and local coalitions through the provision of data, training, coordination, and leadership. This capstone will focus on evaluating GaIPP’s data management and their need to provide a publicly available system that presents all the current, activity-related programs of GaIPP. Recommendations for improving data management for GaIPP include (1) a designated group to create and maintain a full-text database, (2) Affiliating the database with the Georgia Department of Health, and (3) focusing specific efforts on the maintenance of the database.
