01-22-2014 (Dayton, OH) -
A review of the region’s pediatric health and safety needs is currently under way. Conducted every three years by Dayton Children’s Hospital, the Dayton Area Children’s Health Review is designed to gain feedback from parents regarding their concerns for the health and safety of their children. This process is designed to give parents a voice regarding their child’s health and safety and so together, our region can determine a course of action to meet these needs.
Parents or guardians of a child 14 years or younger are invited to complete the online survey conducted by Deft Research. Results from the study will provide Dayton Children’s and other community health partners with insights into the state of pediatric health in our region and help identify additional or improved services, programs, education and outreach required to improve the health status of all children.
Names of participants completing the confidential survey will be entered into a drawing to receive a one of five $100 Kohl’s gift cards.
The results from the research will be released in spring 2014. After reviewing results of the survey, Dayton Children’s will work with community partners on an implementation plan to address the key issues raised by parents and other pediatric health care providers in the region.
Parents with a child age 14 or younger, are invited to participate in the online survey.
About the Regional Child Health and Safety Review
The Regional Child Health and Safety Review is funded by the Dayton Children’s Foundation. The study helps to determine the health status, behavior and emerging needs of children 14 years or younger within the Dayton Children’s service area. The 2014 study will be the fifth assessment since 2002. The 2011 study found kids were generally healthy, but pointed to three areas of concern—obesity, asthma and allergies, and injury.
