Project Overview
Previous efforts by an EMS for Children task force have suggested that early involvement of rehabilitation specialists and comprehensive discharge planning are essential in achieving optimization of trauma outcomes. The goals of this project are to (1) integrate rehabilitation services in the continuum of trauma care and optimize trauma outcomes; and (2) increase understanding of the outcomes of pediatric trauma and explore the relationship between these outcomes and service use following pediatric trauma.
