Injury Prevention

Whether it's baby-proofing your home for a new arrival or avoiding distracted driving, injury prevention is the first step in avoiding unnecessary hospital visits. Hawaii Pacific Health works directly with the community in providing educational materials and supports various initiatives that promote injury prevention for all ages. 


Injury Prevention at Kapiolani

Unfortunately, injury is the number one cause of death for children in the United States. However, most childhood injuries are preventable and Kapiolani's Injury Prevention team works to decrease injury-related hospital visits through community outreach and education. 

Working alongside Kapiolani Trauma Services, Injury Prevention works to treat and prevent childhood injuries, no matter how common or complex they are.
