3180.0 Child and Adolescent Injury Posters

Monday, November 9, 2009: 12:30 PM
This poster session is designed to highlight various unintentional and intentional injury issues impacting children and adolescents. Several studies explore these issues among racial and ethnic populations, including American Indian youth, Latino early adolescents, and youth living in Puerto Rico. In addition to presenting the epidemiology of injuries due to various mechanisms, posters also highlight potential injury prevention countermeasures.
Session Objectives: 1. Identify two examples of how technology is being used to prevent injuries among youth. 2. Describe injuries to children that involve consumer products, such as wagons and strollers. 3. Explain the psychosocial and socio-demographic risk factors for intentional and unintentional injury among youth.
