Violence is preventable – not inevitable
This is the belief of the Scottish Violence Reduction Unit in taking a public health approach to treating violence.
Day one of LEPH2019 plays host to this compelling Convened Session @ 12.05pm.
Program Highlight: The approach to violence reduction in Scotland and its wider application
The panel will address how the learning from Scotland can be transferred across very different areas of the country? What are the challenges and how can we overcome them? There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to violence prevention. However, what is key is the need to understand the underlying problems and how best to apply the evidenced based ‘solutions’.
