2015 MOC Part II Self-Assessment – Injury Prevention – Adolescent

This module will address a broad range of topics relating to top causes of injury in adolescents and how to address them in the pediatric office setting. The importance of providing appropriate anticipatory guidance to parents is essential to helping them practice safer behaviors to prevent future injuries to their child. This module will provide pediatricians with an understanding of the top causes of injury in adolescents and the importance of providing appropriate anticipatory guidance to parents to increase safety behaviors. Topics covered will include teen driving, water safety, firearms/bullying, sports injuries and concussions, internet/ media safety, pedestrian safety and suicide prevention.

Target Audience: The target audience is pediatric healthcare providers, the majority of whom are general pediatricians and subspecialty pediatric physicians.

Objectives: Following completion of this educational activity, learners should be able to:

  1. Participants will learn the top causes of severe injuries to adolescents.
  2. Understand the common mechanisms that cause severe injury and successful methods for prevention.
  3. Participants will review recommendations for injury prevention counseling in the office setting as it relates to teen driving, water safety, firearms/bullying, sports injuries and concussions, internet/media safety, pedestrian safety, and suicide prevention.

Needs Assessment/Gap: The Ohio Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics conducted a survey in the fall of 2011 that asked pediatricians about their experience and views on injury anticipatory guidance, counseling and product distribution. One of the survey’s major findings indicated that less than 20% of physicians have received special training on injury prevention strategies or methods. With a lack of knowledge on injury anticipatory guidance, as well as an apparent lack of time to address these topics, the Injury Prevention Learning Collaborative aims to provide practices with tools to help identify the areas where guidance is needed, as well as provide concise talking points that allow providers to address issues in a short period of time. As adolescent health becomes a forefront issue in pediatrics, physicians have noted a gap in knowledge relating to teen driving, water safety, fire arms, bullying, and sports injury/concussions.

The Ohio Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics (Ohio AAP) conducted a survey in the fall of 2011 to ask pediatricians about injury prevention guidance/counseling within their practice. This survey provided insight into the current practices/knowledge of primary care providers in the Ohio, as well as insight into topics that they would like to know more about. The “Injury in Ohio” report, located on the Nationwide Children’s website, provided detail about the prevalence of unintentional injuries in the state, which helped the project to have concrete details on why injury prevention should be a focus The “Childhood Injury Prevention Counseling in Primary Care Settings – A Critical Review of the Literature” article showed the positive outcomes that result form anticipatory guidance/counseling.

In 2006, the leading cause of death for Ohioan’s aged 1-44 years was unintentional injuries. Pediatricians and other healthcare providers realize that this is the case, but as stated above, many of them have not received special training on injury prevention. Physicians not only recognized their lack of training, but also indicated that they would like to receive special training. One of the major reasons the project has chosen to address this need is because it is shown that counseling/guidance during an office visits is associated with improved injury prevention habits, such as increased motor vehicle restraint use, safe home hot water temperature and smoke alarms in the house.
