Experimental: education intervention
The intervention delivered education about the benefits of bicycle helmet use and safety and was designed to be sensitive to the age and educational level of the study participant.
Behavioral: education intervention
The brain injury prevention education intervention included case scenarios as well as education about the benefits of bicycle helmet use. The intervention was designed to be sensitive to the age and educational level of the study participant and his or her parents. Educational materials were chosen to provide use of the five senses to enhance the learning experience. The intervention took place in the privacy of the patient's hospital room. The study was designed so as not to interfere with the hospital standard of care.
The proper way to fit the bicycle helmet was demonstrated.
No Intervention: control
Printed materials were given to the control group, along with a helmet for each participant.
