EMS for Children to Host EMS Research: A Path to Improving Pediatric Prehospital Emergency Care

The Health Resources and Services Administration Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Program, in collaboration with the Indian Health Service Clinical Support Center and the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS) Presents EMS Research: A Path to Improving Pediatric Prehospital Emergency Care on Monday, May 16 from 3:00 to 4:30 pm (Eastern).

This webinar will feature two EMSC-funded Targeted Issues projects. The first project, the Charlotte, Houston and Milwaukee Prehospital (CHaMP) Research Node, assesses the feasibility of integrating an EMS Research Node Center into the EMSC Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN) to conduct relevant and innovative prehospital pediatric research. The second project, Prehospital Oral Steroids for the Treatment of Status Asthmaticus in Children (POSTSAC), is focused on whether prehospital administration of oral steroids to pediatric patients with moderate to severe asthma exacerbations decreases time spent in the ED and the need for hospitalization.

Free continuing education will be provided for EMS providers, nurses, and physicians. To register for this event, please visit: https://hrsaseminar.adobeconnect.com/ems-ptippec/event/registration.html.
