Stuemky J. n.d.. Developing and Improving the Capacity of Existing Pediatric Emergency Medical Services in Oklahoma [Final report]. Oklahoma City, OK: University of Oklahoma,

Annotation: The State of Oklahoma has a limited and fragmented EMS system that has not adequately addressed the needs of its pediatric population. To decrease the negative outcomes of pediatric emergency care, this project: (1) Established a prehospital- and hospital-based data collection system to provide definition of emergency medical services for children (EMSC) and identify negative outcome factors; (2) developed and assisted a statewide consortium in support of EMSC issues; (3) provided pediatric prehospital and hospital care training to emergency medical technicians, nurses, and physicians; and (4) worked with Native Americas and Hispanic populations to prevent child abuse and related injuries. [Funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau]

Houston J. 1994 (ca.). New Hampshire Emergency Medical Services for Children Project [Final report]. Hanover, NH: Dartmouth College, 35 pp.

Annotation: The New Hampshire emergency medical services (EMS) community concentrated its efforts on adult trauma and medical emergencies and has devoted less attention to the specific needs of pediatric patients. To reduce the incidence of preventable pediatric emergencies and to improve the outcome of acutely ill and injured children, this project focused on four areas: (1) Education programs for emergency room physicians, nurses, and prehospital personnel; (2) public information, education, and prevention programs; (3) prehospital pediatric emergency treatment protocols, facility assessment, pediatric triage, and interhospital transfer guidelines; and (4) quality assurance and data collection.

Shafermeyer R. 1993 (ca.). North Carolina EMSC Project: A Model System for Statewide Plan Development [Final report]. Chapel Hill, NC: University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, 44 pp.

Annotation: This demonstration project strove to enhance the emergency medical services (EMS) system in North Carolina by improving the system's ability to manage pediatric patients. The project goal was to create a statewide model EMS system that minimizes further injury or deterioration of seriously ill or injured pediatric patients prior to their arrival at a definitive care center. We created a project group and an advisory board to help achieve the project goals through a cooperative statewide effort that included representation from all groups responsible for the care of seriously ill and injured pediatric patients.
