Tiny Cargo, Big Deal! An Adaptive ED-Based eHealth Intervention to Promote Correct and Consistent Size-Appropriate Child Passenger Safety Behaviors and Reduce Disparities

Official Title: Tiny Cargo, Big Deal! An Adaptive ED-Based eHealth Intervention to Promote Correct and Consistent Size-Appropriate Child Passenger Safety Behaviors and Reduce Disparities

Motor vehicle collisions remain the leading cause of unintentional injury deaths among children in the United States despite the availability of car seats and booster seats that are effective in preventing injuries. Some communities are disproportionately impacted by deaths in crashes because of suboptimal child passenger safety behaviors. This study involves testing different ways to promote correct and consistent use of size-appropriate child passenger restraints: 1) informational brochures and 2) Motivational Interviewing techniques plus patient-centered eHealth materials (e.g., a tailored, mobile-friendly website and text messages). This study is designed as an adaptive randomized controlled trial and available to English and Spanish-speaking families.
