Teen Driving Safety Tools

The Teen Driving Safety Research team at the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia has created free evidence-based teen driving safety tips and tools for teens, parents, educators, advocates, policymakers, and primary care pediatricians. These teen driving safety tools are to be used to enhance teen driving safety and include fact sheets, videos, educational curricula, and a consumer website.

Program Planning and Evaluation Resources

  • Our researchers collaborated with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation to develop tools to facilitate the evaluation and enhancement of safe driving programs for teens. Although focused on teen driver safety topics, these resources can be used by those interested in a wide range of safety and other public health topics:
  • The 13-chapter Program Planning & Evaluation Guidebook includes how to conduct a needs assessment to determine specific problems and needs for individual areas; generating SMART objectives; selecting appropriate programming, and recommendations for determining evaluation metrics.

  • The Program Planning & Evaluation Resource Book includes evidence-based, adapted supplementary resources, such as worksheets; pre-post surveys; websites; literature recommendations; data resources; and more to help guide your programming efforts. 

  • The CHOP Program Planning and Evaluation YouTube Channel includes videos to accompany each chapter of the guidebook.
