Project Title:
Predictive value of identified environmental, socio-demographic and behavioural factors for accidental poisonings in young children.

IRMRC Supervisor:
A/Prof Ann Williamson

Other Supervisor(s):
Dr Debra Black, School of Public Health and Community Medicine

School of Enrolment :
School of Public Health and Community Medicine

Project Summary:
This study investigates the relationship of several environmental, socio-demographic and behavioural factors and accidental poisonings in young children. The existing literature on accidental poisoning in young children has examined several environmental, socio-demographic and behavioural risk factors for accidental poisoning but the results from the studies have varied. This study re-examines these factors and also investigates maternal parenting behaviour and child self-regulatory behaviour as protective factors. The study contributions include the identification of independent factors related to accidental poisoning in children, which also may be relevant to other childhood injuries.
