Abstract

The aim of this quantitative study was to identify the effect of interactive education with 3-dimensional puzzles on the injury-prevention behaviours of school-age children in Bekasi, Indonesia. This study used a pre-post group design to select the intervention group and the control group. Of the 120 elementary school students included, 60 were placed in the intervention group and 60 in the control group. Multistage random sampling determined the schools, and simple random sampling determined the subjects. The results showed that interactive education with 3-dimensional puzzles was significant for knowledge (p < 0.001), attitude (p < 0.001) and injury prevention skills (p < 0.001). Interactive education sessions with 3-dimensional puzzles significantly improved knowledge related to injury prevention. Therefore, interactive education with 3-dimensional puzzles may prevent injuries in school-age children. School nurses can use this technique to improve their health education programs.
