Information for stall holders
The Trauma Service Westmead Hospital
P.O. Box 533
For the last eleven years, Westmead Hospital has held bstreetsmart (previously The Youth and Road Trauma Forum). This injury prevention program is open to students in years 10 to 12 in all government and non-government high schools in NSW and the ACT. The Forum is held at the Qudos Bank Arena (previously Allphones Arena), Olympic Boulevard, Sydney Olympic Park. More than 142,000 students from 378 schools have attended over the 11 years. Evaluations of both students and teachers have received the event very positively with many schools attending consecutive years. There was also significant interest and support from the media.
The forum was held because our youth are being severely injured and killed due to potentially preventable road crashes. The NSW statistics for 2014 for 17-25 year olds, recorded 15181 road traffic crashes of which 67 were fatalities and 4,742 were injured. These young people hold only 14% of licenses, but they are involved in 21% of fatal crashes. Westmead Hospital Trauma Nurses are committed to decreasing these numbers.
The forum provided students who are most at risk, a realistic look at the trauma caused by road crashes and provided them information and strategies in an attempt to reduce serious injuries and deaths. The forum’s contents and structure is aimed to treat young people as adults allowing them freedom to choose from a range of interactive exhibits.
2016 saw over 19,500 students from 178 schools attend over the three days.
Please confirm your commitment as soon as possible.
