Protecting children with correct restraint use in the car

A team of investigators, including Allison Curry, from CHOP Center for Injury Research and Prevention and the Perelman School of Medicine found that caregivers from vulnerable populations demonstrated proper child restraint use if they engaged with a Child Passenger Safety Technician/Inspection Station or their Pediatrician.

“Among caregivers from vulnerable populations, almost all who had used a Child Passenger Safety Technician or their Pediatrician to learn about child passenger safety had their children appropriately restrained. This suggests connecting caregivers to “experts” may help reduce disparities in appropriate child restraint use.”
