Developing Childhood Injury Prevention Programs: An Administrative Guide for State Maternal and Child Health (Title V) Programs.
Birch & Davis Associates, Inc., Silver Spring, MD.
Based primarily on the experience of three childhood injury prevention demonstration projects, this manual provides state Title V program directors with an action guide for developing targeted childhood injury prevention programs. The manual is divided into four sections: background; program planning; program design; and program implementation and evaluation. Containing "how-to" information, specific examples, and helpful hints, the manual can be used to develop a total program, to implement separate program components, or to improve or expand existing programs. Chapter I discusses unintentional injury among children in terms of mortality, morbidity, and risk factors influencing injury type and distribution. Chapter II supplies concepts useful in identifying injury factors, conceptual tools for generating countermeasures to unintentional injury, and concepts and issues associated with assessment of countermeasures. Program planning is discussed in Chapters III and IV which focus, respectively, on assessing statewide need by collecting and analyzing epidemiological data and on initial phases of program planning. Formulating strategy, surveying prevention approaches, and designing prevention materials, all aspects of program design, are discussed in Chapters V, VI, and VII. Chapter VIII focuses on program organization and administration; Chapter IX discusses selection and cooperation with local communities; and Chapter X overviews evaluation design and data analysis.
