Child Safety Good Practice Guide

This resource is from Safe Kids Canada (now known as Parachute). This resource provides the first seminal comprehensive document in the country from which decision-makers, practitioners and legislators can base their work and recommendations. It will enable Canadian injury prevention practitioners to examine Canadian strategy options for unintentional child injury. This resource can be used by health care professionals to promote good practice in planning and implementing strategies to address injury in children aged 0-14 years of age. Areas of safety included in this document include passenger safety, pedestrian safety, cyclist safety, water safety, fall prevention, burn and scald prevention, poisoning prevention, choking/strangulation prevention, general home safety, and general community-based injury prevention. This resource uses a series of evidence statements describing current good practice, provides an indication of whether a case study for that particular strategy has been identified and included, and provides suggestions for transferring and implementing that strategy.
