During the current Targeted Issues grant cycle (2019-2023), EMSC will invest 6.5 million dollars into projects that will demonstrate the link between ED and EMS system readiness improvements and improved pediatric clinical care and health outcomes. Two of the new grants will focus on improving ED pediatric readiness and assessing how adoption of the Pediatric Readiness national guidelines is associated with changes in the quality of pediatric clinical care and pediatric health outcomes. Three grants will assess the impact of the presence of a Pediatric Emergency Care Coordinator (or PECC), a designated individual or combination of individuals responsible for key coordination roles focused on improving pediatric patient care and management within a local EMS agency.
