Abstract

The five abstracts that follow provide insight into four safety centers. Dr. Gittleman, Dr. Belkowitz and Dr. Emery each report on evaluations of their safety centers. Dr. Gittleman's group tracked services provided, product distribution and quality of service in the first 6 months of Cincinnati's safety center operation. The data are important to both the center's formative evaluation and it's ability to justify future funding. Dr. Belkowitz reports on Miami's mobile safety center's progress in parent safety education, showing a knowledge increases in nearly all participants. Dr. Emery's evaluation of Denver's Junglemobile, a mobile safety demonstration center targeting children, showed significant gains in child knowledge regarding CPS, but change was neither sustained nor related to behavior. In a separate abstract regarding Miami's mobile safety center, Ms. Stepanian reports on the unexpected adjustments needed, the lessons learned, over the first year of operation. Ms. Philbrook reports on the biggest challenge of all - sudden loss of funding for the hospital-based safety center in Minneapolis.
