Where can I find information about preventing & treating pediatric injuries?

Sources of information about preventing and treating specific types of pediatric injuries include:

  • American Academy of Pediatrics website External Web Site Policy
  • Pediatric and family physicians
  • Pediatric physician assistants
  • “Advice nurses”
  • Other clinicians with training and expertise in treating children and advising them and their parents about preventing injuries

Although the NICHD conducts and supports research on pediatric injury, its treatments, and its long-term outcomes, the Institute is not the primary federal source of information for non-researchers on injury statistics and information on preventing pediatric injuries. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) provide a range of information for parents, caregivers, and families about ways to prevent childhood injury, safety recommendations, and product warnings and recalls.
