The Injury Prevention Program, through a team of health providers and educators, provides education, resources and programs to families and patients within the Hospital and in the San Diego community.
The program works closely with County Health and Human Services and the Hospital's Trauma Department to monitor the incidence and prevalence of unintentional injury in our region. A Report to the Community is published every three years to help focus our efforts on the most common injuries according to age and development. Programs are developed to address these concerns and information is posted on this website when emerging trends are evident.
Kohl’s Department Stores is a major sponsor of the program and provides resources to fund the Transportation Safety Program. This program provides education and inspections stations to ensure every ride in a vehicle is a safe one, for every member of the family.
Rady Children’s is the lead agency for national and international coalitions devoted to research and program development for childhood injury prevention. Locally, Rady Children’s participates in a consortium of Level 1 trauma centers, so that collectively, we can provide educational campaigns and programs to address the most prevalent injury concerns.
