National Center for Education in Maternal and Child Health, Arlington, VA.
This publication provides abstracts of 58 active and 42 completed projects designed to improve emergency medical services for children (EMSC). 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 the projects include injury prevention, children's needs in disasters, poison control services, EMS access through out-of-hospital and pre-hospital services and emergency rooms, intensive care, rehabilitation, and reintegration into the community. Abstracts of projects are divided into six sections: (1) projects to support EMS improvements; (2) the EMSC resource network; (3) state system development grants; (4) targeted issue grants; (5) research grants; (6) continuing education grants; and (7) completed projects. Each abstract contains: (1) the name, grantee, director(s), contact information, project number, and project period; (2) the problem addressed; (3) goals and objectives; (4) methodology; in most cases, (5) evaluation; and, in some cases, (6) experience to date.
