This study aims to develop and disseminate a survey to administer to New Jersey Emergency Department (ED) Directors at Non-Trauma Centers across NJ to examine the collection and analysis of data to quantify nonfatal gunshot injuries in New Jersey. Our interdisciplinary research team will co-design a survey that will collect information from Emergency Room departments on the number on nonfatal gunshot patients treated at that hospital in the last 12 months. It is also intended to leverage this study to collect physicians’ perspective on gun violence and barriers to transferring patients to New Jersey Trauma centers when needed.r:
- What is the total number of nonfatal gunshot victims treated at Non-Trauma Centers in New Jersey in the last 12 months?
- What are the barriers to executing a NJ Trauma Center transfer and leverage NJ Trauma Center resources?
