Abstract

Faith Community Nurses (FCNs) work in congregations to promote health within and beyond the faith community. The FCN is in an ideal situation to promote injury prevention, but many FCNs lack the resources to facilitate injury-prevention programs. Our community teaching hospital's trauma services department undertook a project to increase awareness among FCNs of their role in promoting injury-prevention strategies by developing an injury-prevention resource library and hosting a train-the-trainer workshop for FCNs. This endeavor was very successful and helped forge an ongoing collaborative relationship between faith communities and trauma services.
