November is a busy month, with the holiday season quickly approaching. National Injury Prevention Day takes place on November 18th, and it is a great reminder to remain aware of child safety as holiday preparations are underway. National Injury Prevention Day raises awareness of the importance of injury prevention and how everyone can play a role. Injury Free Coalition for Kids is hosting a kick-off webinar on November 17th from 10:00AM-11:00AM ET featuring Benjamin Hoffman, president-elect of the American Academy of Pediatrics. They will also be hosting a live Injury Prevention Day Twitter chat on November 17th at 1:00PM ET.
Unintentional injuries remain the leading cause of death for infants, children, and adolescents. During the holiday season, there is a risk of child injuries involving passenger safety, fire and burn safety, and poisoning. Below are recent CSN resources on these child injury topics that can help guide prevention efforts.
