Abstract:
Purpose: This study will identify health promotion procedures utilized by primary care practitioners (pcps) to educate children about farm safety. Specifically, the study will identify the incidence of care provided to children involved in farm accidents; determine the percentage of pcps who provide anticipatory guidance related to farm safety; and examine the barriers to utilization of farm safety materials. Theoretical Framework: Nora Pender's 1996 theory (Sakraida, 2002) serves as the conceptual framework. A major concept in her model is interpersonal influences, which explains the power that healthcare providers have concerning behaviors, beliefs, or attitudes. Pender's model will assist in describing whether pcps use the opportunity to engage patients in health promoting behaviors related to farm safety. Methods (Design, Sample, Setting, Measures, Analysis): Based on a pilot study conducted in Northwestern Pennsylvania (nwpa), this larger descriptive study will survey pcps in all rural counties in Pennsylvania. Using a stratified random sample (n = 500), a survey developed for the pilot study will be mailed. Content validity was established by a panel of four aprns. Reminder cards will be sent after two weeks. Data analysis will include descriptive statistics and content analysis. Results: The pilot study found that 31% of the children seen by the pcps lived or worked on farms and 17% had sustained farm injuries caused by animals, muscular strain, and machinery. Seventy-three percent (73%) of the pcps indicated interest in receiving materials. This larger study will determine if these findings are consistent throughout the rural counties of Pennsylvania. Conclusions and Implications: The pilot study indicated there is a need for additional health promotion resources to assist in reducing the risk of farm injuries. If the results of this study validate those of the pilot study, a future project would focus on education of pcps to the available and developmentally-appropriate safety resources for children living on farms.
