Injury Prevention

As part of their dedication to reducing traumatic injuries, Indiana University Health Trauma physicians offer injury prevention programs to keep families safe. Our staff provides a wide range of programs that are available at community events, schools and at the hospital. These programs, available for children, teens, parents and senior adults, focus on creating a safe environment and making better decisions about safety.

Injuries are the leading cause of death for children under the age of 18. IU Health hospitals statewide host special programs for children and teens backed by the experts at the Level I Pediatric Trauma Center at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health. These programs, such as Safe Sitter and Pedestrian Safety courses, aim to help prevent injuries.

The senior population is also susceptible to injuries, particularly as the result of falls. By working with local senior resources, we offer programs aimed at reducing the number of falls and creating habits that keep seniors safe.
