What is P.A.R.T.Y.?

P.A.R.T.Y. is a trauma prevention program aimed at young people aged 15-25. Trauma is defined as an injury that has been caused by physical force such as motor vehicle crash, falls and assaults.  P.A.R.T.Y. seeks to give participants a snapshot of the possible traumatic and often preventable consequences of risk-related behaviour that can lead to traumatic injury.

P.A.R.T.Y. participants spend time with staff in the Emergency/Trauma Centre, the Intensive Care Unit, Trauma Wards, and Rehab units of the hospital getting an up front, true to life experience of the impact of trauma on young lives.

P.A.R.T.Y. was first developed in 1986 at the Sunnybrook Health Services Centre in Toronto, Canada by Emergency Department staff who were concerned at the large number of young people impacted by preventable traumatic injury being treated in their unit. The P.A.R.T.Y. program is now operated by staff at established trauma hospitals at over 100 sites around the world.

 Currently in Australia these hospitals are:  

      *    Royal Perth Hospital (WA)

      *    Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital (QLD),  

      *    The Royal North Shore Hospital (NSW), 

      *    The Royal Melbourne Hospital (VIC), and 

      *    The Alfred (VIC).

The P.A.R.T.Y. program at The Alfred in Melbourne has been developed beyond a schools education initiative to now reach young repeat offenders, navy trainees, parents and country youth. 

An initiative of the National Trauma Research Institutea partnership of Monash University and AlfredHealth.
