P.A.R.T.Y Program - Prevent Alcohol and Risk Related Trauma In Youth
P.A.R.T.Y. is an in-hospital injury prevention program run state-wide Queensland Hospitals.
The P.A.R.T.Y (Prevent Alcohol and Risk-related Trauma in Youth) Program is a dynamic, interactive health promotion program for teenagers aimed at promoting injury prevention through reality education. Its aim is to provide teenagers with information about trauma that will enable them to recognise potential injury-producing situations, make prevention-orientated choices, and adopt behaviours that minimise unnecessary risk.
The program is provided to schools free of charge. Travel to and from the hospital are the responsibility of the schools.

High school students aged 15 to 18 years. Rockhampton Hospital hosts six P.A.R.T.Y Programs per year.
