Fund the Pediatric Education Series, offering continuing education to pre-hospital and hospital based emergency providers and school nurses.
Write guidelines to stabilize and manage pediatric emergency patients; transfer inter-hospital transfer, of severely ill or injured pediatric patients, and created a system to recognize hospital emergency department's ability to and care for critically ill and injured pediatric patients once they have been admitted through the emergency department.
Survey emergency departments to ensure that they have the essential guidelines and resources in place to provide effective emergency care to children.
