The “Prevent Alcohol and Risk-related Trauma in Youth” (P.A.R.T.Y.) Program based at Royal Perth Hospital (RPH) is a dynamic, interactive health promotion program for youth. It is intended to promote injury prevention through reality education.
The P.A.R.T.Y. Program was developed by an emergency nurse in Toronto, Canada, in 1986 in response to high numbers of preventable trauma incidents. The licensed Program has been operational at Royal Perth Hospital since 2006, and was the first Australian P.A.R.T.Y. Program site. There are now several sites in Australia and over 120 world-wide. As of 2017, nearly 14,000 Western Australian teens have participated. The program has satellite P.A.R.T.Y. Programs in Albany, Bunbury, Busselton & Midland. The Perth Program is overwhelmingly popular and is routinely booked a year in advance.
