ARTURO’S RISTORANTE FIREPLACE LOBBY GRAND VIEW A/B

With the majority of people in the workforce belonging to the “boomer” group, generational diversity has become an important issue for everyone. We look to our clients whose differing needs will result in seismic changes in consumer education techniques. We can look to our colleagues as we struggle to understand what motivates each individual. But, more importantly, we must look to ourselves as our practice arenas resound with the refrain “I can’t believe they said that/did that.” People today must be comfortable with diversity. This presentation will outline the four major age groups and the work characteristics typical of them. By learning about each generation and its values, the clinician will practice with a better understanding of what motivates their colleagues. With this increased knowledge services will be rendered that take into consideration the total person. Emphasis will be placed on the commonalities of each generation while recognizing their differences. Moderator: Keynote: KEN CARPENTER Executive Director, NYS Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee FAITH ROBERTS, RN BSN CRRN Coordinator, Professional Practice, Carle Foundation Hospital, Urbana IL

OLYMPIC 1/2/3 SKY

The “baby boomers” will begin turning 65 years old in 2011. By the year 2030, those over 65 will be the largest segment of our population. Many of them will still be driving and it is estimated that those over 65 will make up 23% of all licensed drivers. Older drivers provide a variety of challenges to law enforcement in terms of enforcement, education and formal notification for retesting. This program will introduce and explain a number of tasks and activities that the law enforcement community can undertake to address this most contemporary concern. Moderator: Presenters: JENNIFER HOGAN Highway Safety Representative, NYS Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee CHARLES RUTHERFORD Liaison, NYS Sheriff’s Association DOMINICK MACHERONE Law Enforcement Liaison, NYS Association of Chiefs of Police

10:30-11:45

Passed School Bus Violation Enforcement

Fulton Police have developed a supporting deposition form specifically for passed school bus violations. The form functions not only as a supporting deposition, but also as a reporting and prosecution tool. The form reduces the amount of time and the frustration in reporting a violation by a bus driver to police. Since the program has been implemented, many forms are now delivered to police via mail. Illegal passing of school buses violates Sec. 1174 of the V&T Law. Most importantly it exposes our children to great risk and has, in fact, taken the lives of two NY children since May 2004. Operation Safe Stop is a 12year partnership between the school transportation industry and law enforcement agencies in our state. Learn how you can improve your local efforts and learn more about the extent of this problem in our state. Moderator: Presenters: CHRISTINA HALE Orange County STOP-DWI Coordinator MARK A.

Curbing Aggressive Driving – What Can Education Do?

Aggressive driving continues to menace our nation’s highways. Throughout the past few years awareness has been raised by efforts to curb the problem through general education and enforcement. To curb recidivism of these drivers, effective education with a behavioral approach is needed. This presentation will focus on how targeted education can impact this population.

POSTER PRESENTATONS
Visit our Poster Presentations in the Exhibit Area. Authors will be available to discuss their work Monday and Tuesday during breaks. General viewing will be on Monday and Tuesday from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm.
We have all attended oral presentations where we have wished that a key slide or overhead had been left on a little longer. In poster sessions, participants have time to study complicated and technical information at their own pace. Poster sessions are also more informal. Many attending oral presentations would have liked to ask a question but did not for one reason or another; time constraints, intimidation by the audience or by the speaker, uncertainty of the appropriateness of the question. At a poster session, there is an opportunity not only to ask quick and specific questions, but also to develop conversations which often evolve into in-depth discussions of underlying principles.

The ROADD (Reduce Our Adolescent Drinking/Drugging and Driving Program
Author: JUDITH MEZEY Assistant Director for Community Based Programs, Student Assistance Services The ROADD Program is an educational program aimed at preventing alcohol and other drug impaired driving among high school students. ROADD is funded by the Westchester County Office of Drug Prevention and STOP-DWI. The program evaluation indicates that ROADD increases perception of the risk of harm of driving under the influence and increases students’ understanding of the need to prevent friends from driving while impaired. This poster will showcase the effective aspects of the ROADD curriculum and present some of the challenges and strategies to implementing a program like ROADD.

Disaster Planning for the Car-less Population: On Foot, Ferry, Bus, and Rail

This presentation provides a framework for creating emergency evacuation best practices.

Fulton Police Department (FPD) has developed a head injury prevention program focused on promoting helmet use by children and thus reducing the incidence of head injuries associated with play vehicles (bicycles, skates and skateboards). The FPD program uses a ticketing process which does not require a court appearance, but does use two “courtesy” tickets. Discuss the procedures required to implement a program to provide safety training and equipment for people who ride bicycles to work, but do so “at risk.” The target population is non-English, limited English speaker, or laborers who ride without safety equipment and are not familiar with state laws affecting cyclists.
