Further study details as provided by University of Manitoba:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To estimate the recruitment rate of an ED referral program for injured youth [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    We will evaluate the proportion of eligible patients who are identified for enrolment and any biases in subject identification


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To identify barriers to participation in a hospital-based case management program [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To determine the average number of contacts and amount of time required per participant [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To estimate the rates of follow-up among those successfully recruited [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To determine the most appropriate way to notify the case manager of an eligible participant [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To determine the most successful enrollment strategy for retention of participants [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To determine level of engagement between the case manager and youth [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To determine the most appropriate method of follow-up [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To determine the impact in violence-related attitudes and behaviours among participants [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To determine the impact on recurrent intentional injury amongst participants [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To determine the impact on modifiable risk factors [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: WrapAround Care Behavioral: WrapAround Case Management
Youth Injured by Violence will be paired with a support worker who has extensive experience working with youth affected by violence.It is important to note that the wraparound concept involves individualized care planning and management. As such, the specific care plan will be different for each participant. Through early intensive meetings, they will develop a mentoring relationship. They will work with the youth to develop a support team, which may include family, teachers, child welfare workers and truly anyone the youth has decided can help them in their path to making positive choices.
