Most injuries in preschool children occur at home, and many are preventable. Parenting programmes, supporting parents to make changes to their behaviour, have been shown to improve outcomes in children.

Most injuries in preschool children occur at home, and many are preventable. Parenting programmes,supporting parents to make changes to their behaviour, have been shown to improve outcomes in children. This study explored whether or not a parenting programme could prevent home injuries in preschool children.

We were asked to target parents whose child had recently been injured. We were concerned that parents asked to take part would fear that they were considered poor parents. We know that parents are interested in learning first aid, so we developed a programme to include first aid and safety advice to make it more appealing, 

Julie Mytton and her team report their findings.
