Abstract IntroductionUnintentional injury is one of the leading causes of death for children and young people in the United Kingdom. Within a five-year NIHR-funded multicentre programme of research (“Keeping Children Safe”), we developed and evaluated an injury prevention briefing (IPB) for fire-related injuries for use by health and social care staff with parents. We subsequently developed an IPB for falls prevention, poisonings and thermal injuries which has been endorsed by NICE, and is freely available online. Methods The IPB for preventing fire-related injuries was developed by combining evidence from systematic reviews on what works to prevent injury and evidence from practitioners about implementing injury prevention in practice. Implementation of this IPB was evaluated with a cluster-randomised controlled trial in 36 children's centres in England. We then used findings from the trial, from practitioner workshops and from systematic reviews to develop the IPB for preventing falls, poisonings and thermal injuries. This IPB provides injury prevention activities for staff in various settings to run with parents. The activities are designed to help parents themselves identify and remedy hazards. ResultsThe RCT demonstrated that providing the IPB with training and facilitation increased provision of fire-safety advice given by children's centre staff to parents. >80% of staff regarded the IPB as a simple, accessible tool which raised awareness and stimulated discussion and changed behaviour in parents. ConclusionEvidence-based injury prevention training materials can improve parental safety practices when delivered by trained and supported children's centre staff.
