1 October 2000

Healthcare Alliances project manages CAPIC, an initiative funded by the Welsh Assembly Government to develop and maintain an effective injury prevention network across Wales. The network is achieved by maintaining an up to date website, circulation of a monthly electronic newsletter and annual conferences to disseminate current research findings. CAPIC is currently funded to work with 10 Communities First areas in Wales to promote home safety and to support and advise Local Health Alliance Injury Prevention Groups. It is also funded to run a safety award scheme to encourage, reward and promote good practice in the field of injury prevention. CAPIC has produced an all Wales Injury Prevention Strategy which was presented to the Welsh Assembly Government in March 2002
