December 3, 2009 is Holiday Safety Awareness Day at the MCH

As a trauma centre, our primary responsibility is to provide excellence in pediatric and adolescent trauma care to the children and teens of Quebec. We also have an important role in injury prevention, which is truly the desired treatment of choice for trauma.

On December 3, 2009 members of MCH Trauma will be answering questions about various holiday safety topics, in the 2B clinic area, from 9:30 am to 2 pm. We will distribute our "Holiday Safety" and "Safe Fall and Winter fun" pamphlets, as well as "Le guide des jouets 2010" from Protégez-Vous. We will also provide information about new regulations and recommendations for ski helmets and other winter sports equipment. Participants will have an opportunity to take part in interactive activities and games and will have the chance to enter a draw for exciting prizes. Get in the holiday spirit and come join us for an informative and fun filled activity.
