The Teen Driver Safety team at the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at CHOP offers free evidence-based teen driver safety tools for teens, parents, educators, advocates,and policymakers for use in enhancing teen driver safety. These tools include fact sheets with teenage driving tips, videos, statistics, and educational curricula, as well as posters and other promotional materials.
Our researchers recently 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.
Contact Emily Sykes, BS to access all of the resources, including key performance measures based on the literature and a database of 62 teen driver safety programs.
