Emergency Medical Services for Children: Abstracts of Active Projects FY 1995.
National Center for Education in Maternal and Child Health, Arlington, VA.
This publication provides abstracts of 43 active and 34 completed projects designed to improve pediatric emergency care. The projects were funded by the United States Department of Health and Human Services' Maternal and Child Health Bureau, in collaboration with the United States Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Issues addressed by these projects include the entire continuum of pediatric emergency care, from injury prevention and emergency medical services access through prehospital and emergency department care, intensive care, rehabilitation, and reintegration into the community. The abstracts of active projects are organized into seven categories: planning grants, implementation grants, enhancement grants, resource centers, targeted issues grants, research grants, and continuing education grants. Each abstract for both active and completed projects contains: (1) the name, location, director, and grant number; (2) the problem addressed; (3) goals and objectives; (4) methodology; (5) evaluation; and, in some cases, (6) experience to date.
