Aims

What our Project will do for Children and EMS

In this work, we will study pediatric champions, or pediatric emergency care coordinators (PECCs) in EMS agencies.The aims for the project are:

  1. ​Determining whether having a PECC improves the quality of clinical care and the outcomes for children cared for by an EMS agency. 
  2. Establishing the best ways to launch a pediatric champion program in an EMS agency. 
  3. Understanding how PECCs can best do their work, and ways to evaluate and support PECCs.
