Abstract

Despite the proven efficacy of bicycle helmets, helmet use among children remains low. Helmet use among children riding bicycles significantly reduces head injuries and death. A variety of promotional programs to increase helmet use in children have demonstrated limited success. This article reviews a variety of approaches to increase helmet use among children. The PRECEDE-PROCEED model is applied and recommendations for community health nurses to promote helmet use among children are provided.
