Abstract: After the Injury is a website maintained by the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Its stated intention is “helping parents help their children recover”. As the title of the injury might indicate, the site is concerned with traumatic injuries, but in focused in particular on assisting parents with children who have suffered some form of trauma due to accident or injury. The site’s design is intended to guide users along an intended path. Essentially it is hoped that users will traverse the website in a certain order or by a certain pattern. This research study was undertaken to determine to what degree users have been following the intended path through website or if they follow it all. Why do we want to study the user navigation path of AfterTheInjury. This study was undertaken to assist the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in modeling user navigation paths so as to determine whether users are following intended paths and which pages users are utilizing. With the results derived from the study, the Web based intervention program can be evaluated in the context of actual use and navigation patterns and redesigned accordingly.
