In children less than one year of age, motor vehicle collisions, drowning, physical abuse, and inappropriate sleep positioning and environments most commonly cause these injuries. Education on risk prevention is a healthcare provider’s responsibility, however, many providers do not have the time, nor the training and resources, to adequately address these topics in well child visits.
The Ohio AAP developed two easy-to-use screening tools (birth-4 months and 6-12 months) for implementation into daily clinical practice that allows providers to quickly and efficiently review risky behaviors with families.
OPEN PROGRAM: The Injury Prevention/Safe Sleep Learning Collaborative is a web-based learning collaborative that includes screening tools to assess risky behaviors in children from birth to 4 months, and 6 to 12 months, along with easy to use scoring sheets and recommended talking points.
