Brief Summary:

This project will utilize the first web-based program to provide tailored injury prevention education. The existing Safety in Seconds program was adapted into a smartphone platform. Parents are recruited from and engage in the program in the clinical setting (PED or PTS). Parents download the app onto their smartphone which is used to ask the questions, collect a parent's responses, assess the parents' safety needs and give tailored directions for proper car sear use. The control group parents will also engage with the smartphone app and receive immediate feedback. However, they will receive tailored educational messages about smoke alarms. Parents will also have access to the online SIS v 2.0 Parent Portal which will have educational features (e.g., tips for keeping children content in their CSSs, links to helpful websites). The investigators will use emerging technology such as push notification and email to remind parents to visit the portal and have their child's car seat reassessed.

The investigators plan to conduct a cost benefit analysis of the program's expected financial benefit from the perspective of a third party payer of medical claims and an in-depth examination of program adoption and implementation using qualitative data collected from key informant interviews, direct observations of the clinic environments, and document review.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from baseline self-reported car seat use at 6 months [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Self-reported measures include the type of car seat used (rear-facing car seat, forward-facing car seat, booster seat, or seat belt), the location in car where it is used (front seat or backseat), frequency of use (some of the time or all of the time) and having the seat inspected by a car seat technician.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from baseline self-reported smoke alarm use at 6 months [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Self-reported measures include having a smoke alarm on every level of the home, having long-life battery alarms in the home, having a fire escape plan and practicing the fire escape plan.
