Published report of the First-aid Advice and Safety Training
7 April 2014
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.
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.
