Emergency Medical Services for Children

Published on AidPage by IDILOGIC on Jun 24, 2005

Examples of funded projects...

1) The Emergency Medical Services for Children Network Development Demonstration Projects are cooperative agreements that demonstrate a system of regional applied pediatric emergency medical services centers designed to expand and improve emergency services for children who need treatment for trauma or critical care. Awardees are linked together in a network to demonstrate a capacity to conduct multi-site studies on issued relating to the management of pediatric events that occur in hospitals as well as in transport. 2) Targeted Issues grants are intended to address specific needs or concerns in the field of pediatric emergency care that transcend state boundaries. Typically the projects result in a new product or resource or the demonstration of the effectiveness of a model system component or service of value to the nation. Types of projects that have been funded within this category include developing model pediatric components for state disaster plans, screening and secondary prevention for psychological sequelae of pediatric injury, basic emergency lifesaving skills in schools, and emergency preparedness for infants with significant heart disease. 3) Clinical Practice Guidelines for Emergency Care grants are intended to promote the development of further strategies to improve the quality of care for children who need emergency care through developing and pilot-testing emergency care practice guidelines for pediatric conditions for which evidenced-based guidelines do not exist and development of a model for implementation and assessment of effectiveness for existing evidenced-based pediatric emergency practice guidelines. 4) Enhancing Pediatric Patient Safety demonstration projects support the assessment and implementation of an existing strategy with the potential for improving patient safety in pediatric emergency care delivery in multiple pre-hospital and hospital emergency department settings. 5) State Partnership grants are intended to solidify the integration of a pediatric focus within the State EMS system. The only eligible applicant is the State EMS agency, unless the State specifically requests and designates another State entity or a school of medicine. Funded projects have included providing rural hospitals with training materials for EMSC teaching and developing a method of ongoing EMSC education and training in rural areas, developing evidenced-based injury prevention programs, develop continuing education for pre-hospital providers that focuses on children with special health care needs, development of a model suicide prevention pilot program, and assessing outcomes of children arriving at trauma centers by direct arrival versus secondary transfer. 6) National Trauma Registry for Children Planning Grant. The purpose of this project is to promote the development of further strategies to improve the quality of care for children who have experienced traumatic injury. This priority is designed to stimulate and devise innovative strategies for collecting uniform data elements characterizing pediatric trauma and clinical management of pediatric injuries.
