Abstract:
In community centred education the community is the patient. Working "with" the community versus "for" the community is critical for successful community education. This presentation will describe how a public health nurse, nursing students, and a nurse educator worked with community partners and the community as a whole to develop and implement an individualized community injury prevention program. A community education program was developed to meet the self-identified snowmobile safety needs of a community. In collaboration with community partners, nursing students mentored secondary level students who in turn educated elementary students integrating the use of interactive injury prevention activities to enhance the development of snowmobile safety knowledge, skills, judgment, and attitude. This presentation will demonstrate how nurses can apply the concepts of community participation, interdisciplinary collaboration, project development, and advocacy in the pursuit of patient centred injury prevention education. The presentation will address how the community driven peer led approach can be applied to other community health promotion and injury prevention initiatives.
