Toolkits contain information, resources, education, forms, links and other valuable material. They may help you champion a project, initiate a program, or evaluate and guide clinical practice. Toolkits are meant to be dynamic resources for busy clinicians and leaders so no two toolkits may be exactly the same.

The Community Injury Prevention Toolkit is a web-based guide to help take the message of Safe Practice and Safe Care into the community. This comprehensive resource provides both the injury prevention theory and practice elements you need to develop and implement an injury prevention program within your community or region, from assessment to evaluation. Also included is the full toolkit as a downloadable PDF document so that you can access the Toolkit at any time digitally or in print.

The EDWIP toolkit is designed specifically for the ED manager, designated team leader, and/or emergency staff to develop and implement a comprehensive plan that addresses the needs related to preventing and managing the occurrence of workplace injuries in the ED. Understanding that workplace injuries are a serious issue, this toolkit was developed by a team of ED nursing colleagues to help establish and accomplish goals for safe practice and safe care in the ED.
- Handbook for Implementing an Emergency Department Electronic Medical Record System (Free for ENA Members, login required)
The emergency department (ED) setting requires a time efficient and clinically effective means to document care provided, review significant patient data, and communicate that information at the transition of care. An Emergency Department (ED) Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system is a vital component of real-time data dissemination for the healthcare team.
- Naloxone Education Toolkit (Free for ENA Members, login required)
Opioid overdose has reached epidemic levels in the U.S. and impacts emergency departments (EDs) on a daily basis.

The ENA Naloxone Education Toolkit (NET) is designed for emergency nurses and providers, and includes the necessary resources to educate patients and family members about opioid overdose. Information on distribution and proper use of naloxone kits is also included in this toolkit.
