The Program for Injury Prevention, Education and Research (PIPER) is an initiative that aims to contribute to the reduction in injury and its outcomes in Colorado and throughout the world as a function of high quality research and effective practice.
Injury is a leading killer in the U.S. and Colorado. Through research, education and prevention activities, PIPER will achieve its mission: to facilitate scientific discovery and evidence-based practice that increases safety, reduces injury and violence, and improves injury outcomes across the lifespan.
PIPER was launched in 2011 as the Pediatric Injury Prevention, Education and Research Program. In 2015, PIPER changed its name to reflect the expanded focus to injury prevention across the lifespan. PIPER is a collaborative initiative of the Colorado School of Public Health, the University of Colorado School of Medicine, and Children’s Hospital Colorado.
