The CIRP image gallery is composed of images, illustrations, graphics, and charts that span all injury research priority areas. Note: These items can be downloaded and used for advocacy and educational purposes with attribution given to the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
CHOP has created a series of 37 educational illustrations, with descriptions in both English and Spanish, to help demonstrate proper restraint use for a variety of ages, sizes, vehicle types, and restraint types. Use these illustrations to enhance presentations, fact sheets, and brochures with accurate depictions of vehicle safety features, restraint types, and correct vs. incorrect restraint use. Illustrations are available in JPG format. Download the Illustrations Index to help you select your images.

From 1997 to 2007, data was collected through Partners for Child Passenger Safety (PCPS), a unique industry/academic research partnership with the goal of providing the nation’s only large-scale child-focused crash surveillance data system. This data provide a scientific foundation for legislative action and have been utilized in state and federal initiatives focused on strengthening child occupant restraint laws. The charts and images below are organized by the year of data collection and may be downloaded for non-profit, educational use with attribution given to the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
In 2014, these charts were updated with generous support from the Association of Global Automakers. Global Automakers, which represents international motor vehicle manufacturers, original equipment suppliers, and other automotive-related trade associations, works with industry leaders, legislators, regulators, and other stakeholders in the United States to create public policy that improves motor vehicle safety, encourages technological innovation and protects our planet.

The Center’s research follows a cycle that encourages action beyond the publication of research findings. CIRP’s innovative “research to action to impact” approach is visually detailed below.
Minds Matter team at CIRP has developed a series of six infographics called "The Truth on Concussions." The JPG file images are easy to share with parents and youth over social media or embedded in e-newsletters and e-blasts. Click on a link below to view and share.
The Digital Health Initiative at the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at CHOP was launched in the fall of 2013 to enable the digital health community to realize positive health outcomes from its apps and other products. This postcard gives potential research funders and research partners information about this exciting new initiative:
The Teen Driver Safety team at the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at CHOP offers free evidence-based educational images for teens, parents, educators, advocates, and policymakers for use in enhancing teen driver safety. These images include charts, graphs, and other visuals. Here is a sampling of what is offered:
Safe Teen Passenger Behavior
Effective Parent-Supervised Driving Practice
These useful tools are part of the earning component of TeenDrivingPlan (TDP), a web-based intervention to help parents effectively supervise their teens’ driving practice.
The Goal Guide helps remind families of their goals for each drive, with a portion of the practice drives focused on learning a specific goal or goals. The tool can be printed to keep in the car or downloaded to an electronic device. goal_guide.pdf
The Logging and Rating Tool helps parents take action to keep teen drivers safe and learning. Families can track their practice by driving environments and record where their teens need more work. logging_and_rating_tool.pdf
Legislative Advocacy: Boost Your State GDL
Use these fact sheets to restart the conversation with your state's policymakers about GDL. Based on new research from CHOP and other evidence, the downloadable, printable resources are meant to be shared with stakeholders and legislators to consider strengthening GDL provisions to further reduce teen crash rates.
