Applying a Health Equity Lens to Injury Prevention Programming
Presented by Parachute, Canada’s national charity dedicated to preventing serious and fatal injuries, this presentation will describe equity-focused child injury prevention approaches and communication strategies. Drawing on Parachute’s previous work, developing a Child Injury Prevention Course for professionals and delivering educational programming to families through centres serving priority neighbourhoods in Toronto, this presentation will discuss lessons learned and important considerations when working with diverse and low-income populations.
Trauma-Informed Approaches to Communicating about Injury Prevention
Erin’s talk will explore how our understandings of trauma and of the nervous system can help us develop more accessible, equitable, and effective injury prevention messaging and imagery, as well as recognize the potential adverse effects of injury prevention campaigns for people who have experienced trauma and adversity.
