Further study details as provided by Dr. Carolyn Snider, University of Manitoba:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To estimate the recruitment rate of an ED referral program for injured youth [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    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 ]
  • To determine the average number of contacts and amount of time required per participant [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  • To estimate the rates of follow-up among those successfully recruited [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  • To determine the most appropriate way to notify the case manager of an eligible participant [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  • To determine the most successful enrollment strategy for retention of participants [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  • To determine level of engagement between the case manager and youth [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  • To determine the most appropriate method of follow-up [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  • To determine the impact in violence-related attitudes and behaviours among participants [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  • To determine the impact on recurrent intentional injury amongst participants [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
  • To determine the impact on modifiable risk factors [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

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.
