SAFE AND SECURE: A MOTIVATIONAL PROGRAM FOR MOTOR VEHICLE OCCUPANT RESTRAINT USE FOR THE TRAUMA PROFESSIONAL
It is through a concerted effort that public advocacy for the use of motor vehicle occupant protection (safety belts, automatic protection, child safety seats) may be achieved. The arrangement of the chapters of this handbook serve as a step-by-step manual providing an issue statement, outlining how to obtain hospital support for this effort, how to educate the hospital staff and why the issue is so important. In addition, this handbook will acquaint the presentor with how to approach and educate small groups of health providers and how to facilitate community outreach through civic organizations. Methods of utilizing all forms of local mass media are presented in a supplement to this handbook entitled "ATS Media Presentors Guide." Presentation ideas have been provided for your use, if desired. This handbook is a guide to help get your program effort underway. It is not intended to be all inclusive, and the American Trauma Society hopes the information that follows will spur creative program development.
