Significance: Unintentional injury is the leading cause of death for children ages 1 through 11. For those who survive severe injuries, many will have lasting challenges such as disability and chronic pain. Education, stronger laws, and safer environments can prevent and reduce serious injuries. Effective strategies, such as increasing knowledge and changing attitudes and behaviors, passing and enforcing legislation and policies that encourage safe behaviors, and changing the design of products and the environment, can prevent many injuries and improve the quality of life for children and adolescents, as well as their families. Critical partners in the development of these strategies include Local Title V Grantees, Oregon Public Health Division, Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention Program, Oregon Public Health Division, Injury and Violence Prevention Section, Oregon Health Authority, Health Transformation Office, Coordinated Care Organizations, 211Info Resource and Referral, Oregon Health Plan, Oregon Office of Childcare, Oregon Early Learning Division, Oregon Safe Kids Coalition (includes Oregon Poison Control, Marine Board, Trauma Nurses Talk Tough, Fire Marshals Office), State Child Fatality Review Team, and Oregon Pediatric Society.
