The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) funded six grants to develop training materials to promote Bystander Care. The objective of these grants was to assist in developing and evaluating several different approaches for delivering the Bystander Care message to a variety of specific target audiences, as identified in the National Standard Curriculum for Bystander Care. The grant recipients were Indiana, Louisiana, Texas, Utah, Wisconsin, and Rhode Island. The Rhode Island project was unable to begin until recently and thus is not included in this report. The report summarizes the programs developed by each of the grant recipients, displays the items developed by each state, and provides a more detailed look at the following: how the group determined their target audience; materials developed; program delivery; effectiveness of the program; and future plans for additional Bystander Care training. Finally, this report provides information about how to develop a Bystander Care program. It shows what methods for promoting Bystander Care were most successful with the grant recipients and recommends approaches that will work with any organization interested in developing a program.
