Injuries are the number one cause of morbidity and morality among children in the United States. In children less than one year of age, these injuries are most commonly caused by motor vehicle collisions, drowning, physical abuse, and inappropriate sleep positioning and environments. An important part of every well-child visit is to educate families about these risks so that they can practice safter behaviors to prevent these injuries. Unfortunately, there is little time during an office visit and providers often aren't sure of the best ways to have these conversations.
As a result, the Ohio Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics has developed two tools to assist pediatric providers in screening families for their injury risks and provide specific talking points to improve discussions. These tools have enabled physicians to be more efficiient and they have made injury prevention discussions easier with families. By consistently incorporating these tools into practice, more than 50% of families made at least one change in their behavior, in turn helping their children to be safer.
Aside fromt the benefits of simplifying the way you address safety in your practice and reducing injuries in children, participants that utilize these tools within our program will have the added benefits of earning:
