The leading cause of death for children in North America is vehicle
collision, despite advances in vehicle technology and design. Canadian
parents use vehicle safety strategies widely (>80%) yet, parents (< 20%)
do so accurately and effectively. Pender's model of health promotion was
used as a theoretical guide to develop and test an intervention program
for parents and children in four Ontario cities. In the first phase of the
study, surveys were distributed through a local school board, 1002 parents
reported on their use of vehicle safety strategies for 1773 children.
Results revealed widespread misuse of vehicle safety systems for children
placing children at risk for serious injury. An intervention program was
designed and tested with 300 parents in 4 cities. Pretest-posttest design
was used to examine the effectiveness of the intervention program on
parents' knowledge and reported use of vehicle safety systems. Analysis of
both qualitative and quantitative data indicates that the intervention was
highly effective in enhancing parents' knowledge. Qualitative data
described how parents used the intervention materials and their
perceptions of the value of the multi-media approach to intervention.
Implications for future research will be discussed including the
development of a national intervention program which is currently
underway.
