INJURIES RELATED TO CHILDREN NOTE WEARING BICYCLE HELMETS 2 Research Summary Table Student Name: _Alicia Scarborough_______________ Author (year) Purpose Sample/Number of Participants (provide descriptive statistics) Design Level of Evidence Findings (provide any inferential statistics) Limitations Lindsay & Brussoni (2014) This study was done to explore whether mandating helmet use decreased non- motorized wheeled activities result injuries for children ages 1-16 years. A convenience sample of 28,618 injury patient records met inclusion criteria from years 2004- 2009 with 35,184 injuries from non- motorized wheeled activities, 72.8% of those patients accounted for cycling related. These records were pulled from CHIRPP, a national ED surveillance program that registers injury cases from 11 pediatric and 4 general Canadian hospital EDs. Comparative/Descriptiv e study of patients involved in non- motorized wheeled activities for the years of 2004-2009. Participants were asked to complete a form about the events of the injury. The form asked questions to describe the circumstances surrounding the injury, including the factors causing or contributing to the injury and the time and place of the injury event. These results were put into CHIRPP. VI: evidence from a descriptive study Findings proved that legislation mandating helmet use may be an effective way of reducing injury among all wheeled- activity users. Limited by how the forms were filed out, could not calculate rates of injuries for all users of non- motorized wheeled devices as this study was limited to CHIRPP hospitals found in urban setting and only represent a small number of total injuries. Patients that went to other hospitals, walk-in clinics or family doctors are not captured.
