PA AAP Let's Talk Series: Innovative Strategies to Support New Teen Drivers Through Primary Care 6.7.23
The PA Traffic Injury Prevention Project funded by a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation
Motor vehicle crashes remain a leading cause of death among adolescents – second to gun violence – and there is a lot we as pediatricians can do to prevent them. In this webinar, we will provide the latest research on the causes of young novice driver crashes and evidence-based strategies for preventing these crashes. We will focus on the role of the primary care practice in preparing teens and families for the period of highest risk – the months following receiving a license. Taking a preventative approach, with funding from NJM Insurance Group, in 2020 Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia launched a network-wide young driver safety program that includes universal identification of young drivers, a novel virtual driving assessment and personalized feedback. We will present our experience to date and strategies that practices can adopt to address not only reducing a major health issue but also improving transportation equity among our adolescents.
Intended Audience: Pediatricians, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, Office Managers, Office Staff and certified child passenger safety technicians/instructors..
Objectives — At the conclusion of the activity, participants will be able to:
• Describe teen drivers and why they are at a higher risk of crashing in the first year of licensure.
• Describe how a large pediatric primary care network integrated teen driving resources into the adolescent well visit.
• Demonstrate how to onboard a virtual driving assessment in a pediatric primary care setting.
Intended Audience: Pediatricians, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, Office
