PECC Targeted Issues Grant
We are learning how having a Pediatric Emergency Care Coordinator (PECC) can lead to better pediatric EMS quality of care and better outcomes
Our project, which is part of a four year grant (2019-2023), will determine:
- Whether having a pediatric emergency care coordinator (PECC) leads to better pediatric EMS quality of care and better outcomes
- How to promote, develop, and retain PECCs
- Family satisfaction with pediatric EMS, and whether PECCs make a difference
We have five agencies participating in the state of Connecticut and by utilizing simulations, offering toolkits, and evaluating experiences, we hope to gain insight into the role of an EMS PECC. Click here for more information.
CTEMSC offers in-person simulations of pediatric recreational emergencies (i.e. outdoor rescues). These simulations are CT OEMS approved for CME credits.
- Pediatric Recreational Emergency - 4 CME Credits
- Pediatric Airway Management - 1 CME Credit
