P.A.R.T.Y Program opens eyes of local students

16 May 2018

The latest round of students taking part in Logan Hospital’s P.A.R.T.Y Program have been left with a lasting impression of what the consequences of risk taking behaviour can be.

The Program (Prevent Alcohol and Risk Related Trauma in Youth) which originated in Ontario, Canada in 1986, was designed to engage young people aged between 15 and 19 by introducing them to emergency service professionals, doctors, nurses, allied health professionals and people who have experienced trauma and survived often with significant disabilities and is now run in 22 sites across Australia including 11 in Queensland.

With road trauma still one of the most common causes of mortality and catastrophic injury amongst young people, Intensive Care Unit and Emergency Department staff exposed students from Victoria Point High School to a "real life" car accident medical scenario.
