Interactive Infographic for Care of Children with Medical Complexities
The Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill has worked to create a semi-interactive document that allows for easier access to resources, information, and instructions on how to treat children with medical complexities.

Evidence-Based Guidelines for Prehospital Pain Management: Recommendations
ABSTRACT: This project sought to develop evidence-based guidelines for the administration of analgesics for moderate to severe pain by Emergency Medical Services (EMS) clinicians based on a separate, previously published, systematic review of the comparative effectiveness of analgesics in the prehospital setting prepared by the University of Connecticut Evidence-Based Practice Center for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). A technical expert panel (TEP) was assembled consisting of subject matter experts in prehospital and emergency care, and the development of evidence-based guidelines and patient care guidelines. A series of nine “patient/population-intervention-comparison-outcome” (PICO) questions were developed based on the Key Questions identified in the AHRQ systematic review, and an additional PICO question was developed to specifically address analgesia in pediatric patients.....
