Firearms are the leading cause of death in U.S. children and youth. Effective injury prevention will require a multi-pronged approach, which includes legislation and education. In this lecture we will discuss the scientific evidence behind effective policies to decrease firearm injuries and deaths to U.S. children and youth. We will also include the role of pediatricians and other clinicians in providing anticipatory guidance to patients and families around firearm safety.
