New “Play It Safe, Georgia” Injury Prevention Campaign
Injury Prevention Campaign Promotes Poisoning Prevention During National Poisoning Prevention Week – March 19 – 25
In recognition of National Poisoning Prevention Week, the Chapter’s Committee on Injury, Violence, Poisoning Prevention (CoIVPP) offers you the second injury prevention flyers for clinicians and caregivers from the “Play It Safe, Georgia!” Injury Prevention Campaign. These flyers will help start the conversation around poisoning prevention by offering you and the families you serve relevant statistics and key strategies for poisoning prevention.
Our next toolkit sheets for clinicians and caregivers will be released in May. The CoIVPP plans to release 12 different injury-related topics in total with Georgia-specific data and information on safety and injury prevention. The topics include Burns, Poison Prevention, Helmet Safety, Submersion Injury, ATV Safety, Firearm Safety, Fireworks Safety, Pedestrian Safety, Child Passenger Safety, Teen Driving, Safe Sleep, and Hot Car Injury.
We hope Chapter members will find these resources helpful in offering anticipatory guidance around safety and injury prevention to your patients and their families. If you have any questions, would like to suggest a topic to be spotlighted, or want to join our dynamic group of Committee members, please contact Kiesha Fraser Doh, Chair of COIVPP, or Fozia Eskew, Committee Chapter Staff Support, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can all do our part to help Georgia kids and their parents and caregivers “Play It Safe, Georgia!” and lower our state’s number of preventable childhood injuries.
