Injury is the #1 killer of children and teens in the United States. Millions more children suffer injuries requiring treatment in the emergency department. Leading causes of child injury include motor vehicle crashes, suffocation, drowning, poisoning, fires, and falls. Fortunately, most injuries are predictive and preventable, and our goal is to keep children safe at home, in school, and in vehicles.

What does the Injury Prevention Program do?

The Injury Prevention Program at Children’s Hospital is a nationally recognized program. Through collaboration with community partners, evidenced based strategies and innovative programming, we strive to reduce unintentional injuries among children and promote safe behaviors in the community. We also conduct research to better understand how to prevent injuries.
