The August 2018 issue of the Journal of School Nursing is devoted to school safety. It features a podcast with Catherine C. McDonald, PhD, RN on her work to create an evidence-based intervention to reduce adolescent driver inattention.
Engaging in handheld cell phone use increases the risk of a crash substantially, and peer passengers are also shown to increase the risk of being involved in a fatal crash.
