Tips for Reducing Childhood Injuries
A prevailing belief in our society is that childhood injuries are accidents or random events. To the contrary, a growing body of scientific evidence has established that injury is similar to any other disease in that it follows a pattern and is highly predictable and preventable. As part of our commitment to excellence in pediatric care, Cincinnati Children's has not only embraced the concept of injury as a disease, but also the belief that prevention is the most humane and cost-effective form of cure.
