Description
Injuries are a leading cause of childhood death and disability. Many injuries are a result of youths taking risks and not avoiding risky situations. An educational program to reduce adolescent injury risk (Prevent Alcohol and Risk-Related Trauma in Youth) has operated out of the Misericordia Hospital in Edmonton Canada since 1992. This reality-based program was evaluated to see if it was impacting program participants. An increase in correct answers for some knowledge, behavior, and attitude questions were found at one week and one month following this 1-day reality-based program. This program was thus considered as having some relevancy in educating grade-9 youths. Although a longitudinal study is needed to determine if this relevancy is long term, this study highlights the importance of reality-based public health programs.
