Abstract
PURPOSE
Physical and psychological challenges can arise from paediatric injury, which can impact child health outcomes. Evidence-based resources to promote recovery are limited. The low cost, portable Cellie Coping Kit for Children with Injury provides evidence-based strategies to help children manage injury-related challenges. This study aimed to describe intervention feasibility and explore initial outcomes (learning, quality of life [QOL], and trauma symptoms).

METHODS
Three independent pilot studies were conducted. Child-parent dyads (n = 61) participated in the intervention; ~36% completed a 4-week follow-up assessment.

RESULTS
Results suggested that the intervention was feasible (e.g., 95% of parents would recommend the intervention; >85% reported that it was easy to use). Over 70% of participants reported learning new skills. No statistically significant differences were detected for children’s QOL or trauma symptoms preintervention to postintervention.

CONCLUSION
Preliminary research suggests that the Cellie Coping Kit for Children with Injuries is a feasible, low-cost, preventive intervention, which may provide families with strategies to promote recovery from paediatric injury. Future research, including a randomized controlled trial, ought to further examine targeted long-term intervention outcomes.
