Too Hot for Tots! : Evaluation of a Paediatric Burns Prevention Resource Turcotte, Kate; Babul, Shelina


The aim of this study is to evaluate Too Hot for Tots! in its ability to change knowledge, attitudes and practices (KAP) around the perception of burn risk, and to highlight burn prevention efforts that can be taken by parents and caregivers of children less than 5 years of age. The objectives of this evaluation are to determine: 1) if the Too Hot for Tots! video and brochure package presented in a public health setting effectively promotes change in parental KAP regarding burns prevention in the home; and 2) if the Too Hot for Tots! brochure package is as effective in promoting change as compared to a presentation in a public health setting as a primary resource.
