CSL introduces new resource: A Guide for Decision Makers
New educational resource announcement from Child Safety Link
Preventing serious injuries matters to all of us and we all have a role to play. Find your role.
Child Safety Link is excited to release a new resource entitled: Preventing Serious Injuries in Children and Youth in Atlantic Canada: A Guide for Decision Makers. The guide is available in both English and French. The purpose of the guide is to highlight the importance of preventing unintentional injuries in children and youth in Atlantic Canada and provide recommendations for comprehensive next steps. It organizes actions into the three E’s of injury prevention and by level of government or organization responsibility. The guide was developed in response to the Child & Youth Unintentional Injury Hospitalizations: 10 years in Review [2004-2013] report released in 2016.
Child Safety Link developed this guide for decision makers, public servants, policy makers, legislators, and others in Atlantic Canada who have a responsibility for keeping children safe or have a role in injury prevention–resource allocation. Unintentional injury issues highlighted in the document are:
- Injuries on the Road
- Active transportation
- Child Passengers
- Injuries at Home
- Breathing related
- Injuries at Play
- All-terrain vehicles
Thank you for your interest in preventing serious childhood injuries!
