What are local providers doing for poison prevention?

CINCH's Injury Prevention workgroup is in the process of developing some intervention ideas for poison prevention in local pediatric practices. We are looking for input from practice providers (nurses, office staff, and physicians) on what providers are currently doing with their patients (parents of young children) with regard to poison prevention as well as what kinds of things they would be willing to engage in in their practices (for instance, distributing stickers/magnets with the Poison Control number, allowing community members to come in and help educate parents, etc.).

If you or someone you know might be interested, we would love to have you attend our Injury Prevention Workgroup meeting on Tuesday, June 12 from 12:30-2:00pm. Please contact Hillary Marotta at 668-6495.
