Bicycle helmet use by children: knowledge and behavior of physicians.

Abstract

A survey of pediatricians and family physicians in Tucson, Arizona revealed that the majority knew that bicycle accidents are an important cause of childhood mortality and were aware that head trauma causes most bicycle-related deaths. Ninety-two per cent knew that children rarely use bicycle helmets and most believed this was due to inadequate parental awareness of the importance of helmets. Despite this, many physicians never include bicycle safety in patient education provided during well-child care.
