This ePoster represents a significant collaborative campaign between the Tasmanian Child Health and Parenting Service and the Tasmanian Burns Unit, and their mutual goal of preventing wood heater burns in young children. The health promotion campaign is now in its third year targeting around 4000 families per year across Tasmania at the six month child health assessment prior to the child becoming mobile. This ePoster will detail the process of developing the health promotional tools that were used in the project and show images of the tools which included pamphlets, fridge magnets and various posters. The ePoster will also explain how these tools were disseminated around the state to parents through the Child Health and Parenting Service. Finally, the poster will present the most recent data collected by the Burns Unit which illustrate a decrease in admissions to the Tasmanian Burns Unit following the period of the health promotion campaign.
