A Mobile Technology Application to Reduce Falls Among Children

Back to search results

Injury is the leading cause of death and hospitalization among Australian children, and falls represent the leading cause of injury. Many childhood falls resulting in hospitalisation could be prevented through modified parental behaviour, and the home environment. The Behaviour Change Wheel is a systematic approach to developing health interventions targeting behaviour change. This PhD study will use this approach, coupled with a concept known as intervention 'tailoring' to develop a mobile technology application aimed at reducing falls in children. The PhD study will cross behavioural change theory and software engineering disciplines to produce a novel and innovative public health tool.
