The Burns Collective:  NCPHWR Knowledge Exchange Workshop:  The Safe-Tea Campaign - 27th February 2017

To be held in the Sue McMulen Room, Vassall Centre, Gill Avenue, Bristol, BS16 2QQ at 9.30 - 4.30pm on 27 February 2017.

Having recently conducted a feasibility study in the most deprived areas of Cardiff, which was delivered by Flying Start, we are now looking at ways of adapting the intervention for roll out across the UK. We are keen to involve Health Visitors, Parents, Children’s Centre staff and other community practitioners working with families of children most at risk from hot drink burns together with IT specialists, media advisors and public health practitioners. 

The workshop aims to:

• Provide a sound scientific evidence from Welsh settings to inform and develop an effective UK wide intervention
• Build working relationships and information sharing between Cardiff University researchers and community practitioners to facilitate effective communication and co-production in the future
• Improve bi-directional understanding of existing Welsh and English early years injury prevention work, increasing experience sharing and learning opportunities.
• Enhance co-production of the future research direction and intervention design
• Inform a UK wide multimedia campaign design

The workshop will cover:

1. An introduction to the Safe-Tea Campaign rationale, design and development.
2. A summary of the research findings from the Safe-Tea Campaign.
3. A personal account of being involved in the Safe-Tea Campaign from a member of Cardiff Flying Start staff. What worked, what didn’t and why.
4. Group discussion covering how the Safe-Tea Campaign could work when expanded to a UK setting.
1. How suitable the campaign would be to roll out across the UK
2. How practical it would be to roll out the campaign across UK

This workshop is funded by the National Centre for Population Health and Wellbeing Research. Lunch and refreshments will be provided on the day.
