This project completed an intervention designed to teach parents of children aged 0-2 years of age how to prevent injuries to their child. The intervention consisted of a two DVD package with information on creating a safe home environment and correctly choosing and installing an appropriate car safety seat. The study hypothesis was that parents who used the intervention would score significantly higher on measures of knowledge, motivation, intention and self-efficacy in implementing injury prevention strategies.
