Helping those who help others
Hear what those who have undertaken our Kidsafe Injury Prevention Short Course have to say about how it transformed the impact they make in their community:
This comprehensive overview of child safety topics supports the implementation of the Victorian EPC Outcomes Framework and informs education and discussions between QEC Early Parenting Centre (EPC) and parents and carers about child safety. The course is a key component in our EPC Clinical Starter Program and is now included as essential training for the expanding Victorian EPC sector.
Kidsafe Victoria’s Safety Essentials Short Course has been an invaluable educational resource for all clinicians working at QEC Early Parenting Centre (EPC) including Maternal and child health nurses, registered nurses, midwives, early childhood educators and allied health workers. Here at QEC over the last 6 months 100 of our clinicians have completed this course and benefited from the valuable child injury prevention content.
I have clarified and refreshed knowledge, feeling more up to date and confident with providing education to parents and linking them to resources.
I have gained a more broad overview across safety topics and age specific, this has assisted in discussions during consultations and new parent groups.
I have greater confidence in talking about safety with parents especially around car safety, water safety and product safety.
It was presented well and the information provided was not only important for me as a health professional working with children but as a useful reminder now that I have a granddaughter and need to modify my own home.
It was easy to complete. Having small modules worked well as I was able to complete when I had a gap in my diary. Reinforced that I had a good knowledge base. Loved the videos which I will be able to show my new parents groups
An excellent resource and learning platform. Information is current and easily translated into practice.
