Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of a booster seat educational intervention on the purchasing/obtainment behavior of parents. A quasi-experimental methodology was utilized, including an educational seminar for parents and their children. Data analysis combined a mixed factorial ANOVA, with one between subjects factor (group; intervention vs. control) and one within subjects factor (session; pretest vs. post-test). Pre-test and post-test scores were examined related to the dependent variables of use and obtainment. Analysis of differences in retention of information and child's cooperation using the booster seat were also examined as independent variables. Findings support the development of educational programs focused on parents and children. The information compiled during this study can be used to guide future development of educational programs by advanced practice nurses in the community, as well as in the family practice setting.
