After hearing many caregivers say they were not aware of the burn hazards in the home or how seriously their child could be injured, Frances developed an evidence-based educational resource for front line educators. This resource was developed with the support of Dr. Cynthia Verchere, pediatric plastic surgeon and Director for BC Children's Hospital Burn Unit, Safe Kids Canada, the BC Professional Fire Fighters' Burn Fund and Safe Start, the injury prevention program of BC Children's Hospital. Frances would like to extend her appreciation to the BC Injury Research and Prevention Unit, the Division of Plastic Surgery at BC Children's Hospital and to the Vancouver Costal Health Authority for supporting the Impact Evaluation of this program. “It only takes a second to change a life forever. ” Frances MacDougall 3

Structure This resource is structured on the principles of Evidence-Based Learning and best practices. This learning model proves that strong scientific and medical evidence can effectively promote behaviour change and stimulate parents and caregivers to perform the necessary steps to prevent many of the common burn injuries seen in this young and vulnerable age group. Key Concepts Burn injury rates are highest during a child’s first year of life. Scald injuries from hot liquids like tea, coffee and hot water are the most common sources of burns in this age group. Although less than 7% of scald burns are caused from hot water, these injuries tend to be more serious than scalds from other sources and require more medical care. Providing constant, close supervision of a child when they are near a burn hazard is the most important strategy parents can employ to keep their child safe. Suggested Procedure  Review the information in this handbook to familiarize yourself with the latest data and statistics and recommendations.  Create opportunity for caregivers to view the video in a facilitated session followed by group discussion. The Impact Assessment Study showed that knowledge transfer and behavior change was most successful when delivered in this format.  The Caregiver’s Discussion presentation was developed to support post-video discussion. The take-home, Too Hot for Tots! Brochure high lights the video’s key messages and includes a temperature testing card and link to view the video online. For this Resource 4

6 | | Copyright 2010 © Frances MacDougall and BC Children’s Hospital (BCCH)www.bcchildrens.ca/safestart Early Childhood Injury Prevention Program Introduction The video Too Hot for Tots! © was developed as a tool to help community educators teach parents about how to prevent burn injuries to young children in the home. The recommendations provided in this program were developed from the guide, Safer Homes for Children produced by Safe Kids Canada. The video begins with Dr. Cynthia Verchere, Director for the BC Children’s Hospital Burn Unit explaining how common these injuries are, where in the home they occur and why it’s critical to provide immediate first aid when a burn happens to reduce the damage caused by the injury. Caregivers will also learn The Three B’s of Burn Prevention: 1. Be Aware of the burn hazards in the home and the serious risk they pose to a child. 2. Be Close within arm’s reach when a child is near or around a burn hazard. 3. Burn Proof the family home. Following these simple, yet effective strategies will help to reduce the risk of a burn injury which happen all too frequently to young children in the home. 6

8 | | Copyright 2010 © Frances MacDougall and BC Children’s Hospital (BCCH)www.bcchildrens.ca/safestart Early Childhood Injury Prevention Program World Health Organization: Safe Communities Model 8 Too Hot for Tots! © incorporates these Best Practice recommendations from the WHO (World Health Organization):  Target groups at high risk – parents of children from birth to five years of age.  Target the caregiver, not the child.  Focus on a single cause of injury – Thermal injuries.  Develop intervention strategies targeting different causes of injury: The Three B’s which target the three most common sources of thermal injury in children under 5; hot liquids, hot water, and hot surfaces.  Link Injury Prevention Programs to a healthcare setting – Community Health Units and B.C Children’s Hospital.  Aim of the program should be to increase caregivers’ beliefs that their own child is vulnerable to injuries and that those injuries can be serious. Educator’s can stress the serious nature of burn injuries and how common these injuries are in this age group, while parents share the story of how their child was injured and how quickly the injury happened. Include short and long term goals with injury outcomes as a measure. Short term goals: an Impact Evaluation has been conducted in Vancouver Costal Health units to establish whether there was significant change in parental knowledge, attitudes and practices around the prevention of scald and burn injuries after being exposed to the Too Hot for Tots! program. Long term goals: to reduce the number of pediatric burn injuries in the province of British Columbia. 8

9 Company name | Company Slogan here Early Childhood Injury Prevention Program Education To achieve long term change and success, injury prevention programs should include a multi-dimensional approach known as The Three E’s. 9 Changing parental knowledge, attitudes and behaviors Legislative changes Minimizing or eliminating hazards in the home Enforcement Environment 9

10 | | Copyright 2010 © Frances MacDougall and BC Children’s Hospital (BCCH)www.bcchildrens.ca/safestart Early Childhood Injury Prevention Program The Three E’s The Too Hot for Tots! © program is based on a behavior change Model known as: The Ecological Theory of Risk Perception 10 This model provides insight into what motives parent to implement injury prevention strategies based on the perceived risk of injury to their child. Refers to the enactment of legislation and product safety regulations which help to make home products and environments safer. For example, changing building code legislation so that water delivery temperature to bathtubs is no greater than 49°C (120 o F). Modifying the home environment to reduce hazards is an essential component of successful injury prevention programs. Education Environment Enforcement 10

12 | | Copyright 2010 © Frances MacDougall and BC Children’s Hospital (BCCH)www.bcchildrens.ca/safestart Early Childhood Injury Prevention Program Why Focus on Burns? Research estimates that 90% of unintentional injuries are preventable by implementing strategies that are known to be effective. 1  For injuries that occur in the home, burns are the second leading cause of emergency room visits for children under 5 in British Columbia. 2  Infants and 1 year olds suffer a disproportionately high percentage of these serious burns. 3  Approximately 130 children in this age group are treated for burn related injuries at B.C Children’s Hospital every year. 4  70% of Canadian parents do not know that the most common cause of burn injuries to children is scalds from hot liquids, such as tea and hot tap water, rather than from fire. 5  Medical care following a scald injury is approximately two times higher than the average for all injuries in the CHIRPP Database. 6  Tap water scalds alone cost $5 million annually in direct health care costs. 7 This does not include additional costs such as skin grafting, physical therapy or pressure garments. 12

13 | | Copyright 2010 © Frances MacDougall and BC Children’s Hospital (BCCH)www.bcchildrens.ca/safestart Early Childhood Injury Prevention Program Emergency Department Surveillance of Pediatric Burn Injuries (CHIRPP) database The average annual decline of burn injuries since 1993 was 0.07%. 13

See Discussion Questions in the Caregiver’s Discussion presentation to help caregivers strategize and plan for this behaviour change.

18 | | Copyright 2010 © Frances MacDougall and BC Children’s Hospital (BCCH)www.bcchildrens.ca/safestart Early Childhood Injury Prevention Program Caregiver Characteristics Parenting Style Injuries are more likely to occur when there is no supervision or intermittent parental supervision. The lowest rate of injury occurred when there was constant supervision. 11 Parenting Experience Parents often underestimate or overestimate their child’s abilities and do not adjust those expectations based on the child’s development. 12 Parenting Beliefs Parents may believe that children learn from being injured and that injuries are a natural consequence of play. 13 Parents may also believe that teaching their child about burn hazards will keep them safe, but young children do not always remember or follow safety rules. 14 Perceptions Mother’s were more likely to follow safety precautions and practices when they perceived the risk of injury to be serious. 16 Perceptions Mother’s were more likely to follow safety precautions and practices when they perceived the risk of injury to be serious. 16 Knowledge As parent’s education level increased, so did their belief that injuries could be prevented. 15 Knowledge As parent’s education level increased, so did their belief that injuries could be prevented

19 | | Copyright 2010 © Frances MacDougall and BC Children’s Hospital (BCCH)www.bcchildrens.ca/safestart Early Childhood Injury Prevention Program Child Characteristics Developmental Age The type of burn injury a child sustains is closely linked to their developmental age. Contact burns from gas fireplaces are more common in children under one year of age. 17 Activity Level Around 6 months of age children usually start to crawl. They are then able to reach for, and grab objects of interest such as appliance cords or mugs containing hot liquids. 21 Cognitive Ability Burn injuries peak between the first and second year of life 19 because children's physical and motor development are growing faster, than their cognitive ability to understand the hazards. 20 Temperament Some children are naturally more inquisitive and active which puts them at greater risk for injury. 18 Temperament Some children are naturally more inquisitive and active which puts them at greater risk for injury. 18 Risk Taking Boys are more likely to be injured than girls. 19 Risk Taking Boys are more likely to be injured than girls

21 | | Copyright 2010 © Frances MacDougall and BC Children’s Hospital (BCCH)www.bcchildrens.ca/safestart Early Childhood Injury Prevention Program Environmental Characteristics Hot Liquids More than half of the children treated for scald injuries in the CHIRPP Database were burnt from hot beverages such as tea, coffee and soup. 22 Hot Water Children who are hospitalized due to hot tap water scalds spend twice as long in hospital as result of their injury, compared to children who are scalded from other sources. 23 Tap water set at 60°C (140°F) cause a serious burn in less than 1 second, where as hot water that is lowered to the recommended 49°C (120°F) would take 10 minutes to cause the same damage. 24 Hot Surfaces The glass of a gas fireplace heats up to 200°C (400°F) in just 6 minutes and takes 45 minutes to cool down to a safe temperature. This is hot enough to cause a third degree burn on contact

30 | | Copyright 2010 © Frances MacDougall and BC Children’s Hospital (BCCH)www.bcchildrens.ca/safestart Early Childhood Injury Prevention Program 30  Remove any hot wet clothing unless it is stuck to the skin.  At the same time find some cold water or cold liquid to cool the skin. Seconds count!  Cool the skin and any clothing that is stuck to the skin for minutes or until the skin feels cool to touch.  Continue cooling the skin, even if the skin peels or blisters. Cooling the skin helps reduce the pain and damage caused by the burn.  Then cover with a clean cloth Stop the Burning! Butter, oil, creams or ice should never be used on a burn. Butter, oil, creams or ice should never be used on a burn.

31 | | Copyright 2010 © Frances MacDougall and BC Children’s Hospital (BCCH)www.bcchildrens.ca/safestart Early Childhood Injury Prevention Program When to get help: If the burn is on the face, hands, feet or groin If blisters develop If the burn is larger than the size of a loonie Parents should have someone else drive them to the hospital. Otherwise, call an ambulance! 31

32 | | Copyright 2010 © Frances MacDougall and BC Children’s Hospital (BCCH)www.bcchildrens.ca/safestart Early Childhood Injury Prevention Program Knowledge and Behaviour Behaviour is influenced by more than “what we know” or “what we believe” 27 Studies have shown that even with this information, there are still a number of barriers that can prevent caregivers from implementing the behaviour changes required to reduce burn injury in the home. Parents are more likely to change their behaviour if they possess the following – be sure to ask:  Do they have the necessary skills and resources to modify the child’s environment, i.e. hire a plumber to reduce water temperatures? Explore strategies they can use – how they can “be aware” and “be close” to keep their child safe when in these types of environments.  Are there barriers to changing the home environment, such as cultural and family, i.e. grandparents and spouses that are resistant to this learning?  Do they believe there is value and benefit in doing so? Many parents believe that it will “never happen to them”. Give a vivid example how quickly and easily this tragedy can happen. The Caregivers Discussion presentation has case studies and questions you can use. 32

33 | | Copyright 2010 © Frances MacDougall and BC Children’s Hospital (BCCH)www.bcchildrens.ca/safestart Early Childhood Injury Prevention Program Through education and advocating for legislative change, we can make a difference and reduce the number of these preventable injuries. 33
