by Tambunan, Rikki Daniella, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2020, 76; 27835401
Abstract (Summary)

Gun violence is an alarming issue in the United States. Injuries and deaths related to gun violence have significantly increased over the past decade. Lack of government restrictions and regulations on firearms intensify the ever-growing issue. As gun violence incidences increase, the United States healthcare system will also be impacted. These incidences pose great challenges for healthcare professionals. Survivors and those affected by gun violence will rely on healthcare professionals for physical and/or mental treatment. Therefore, it is crucial that healthcare professionals practice empathetic and trauma-informed care. However, many healthcare professionals are not adequately trained regarding treatment related to gun violence. In addition, healthcare professionals lack the unique skills that are crucial to providing care for survivors and those affected by gun violence.

JNR Health Solutions aims to address this issue by providing gun violence education and training services to healthcare professionals in Los Angeles County. The ultimate goal of this organization is to develop skills for reliable and resourceful healthcare professionals on gun violence related care issues. Well-trained and informed healthcare professionals will support patients affected by gun violence to receive better care and achieve better health outcomes. This business proposal will provide detailed insights on how JNR Health Solutions intends to achieve its goals and plans to reduce the gun violence epidemic.
