Aligning the Pediatric Emergency Medicine Research Agenda to Reduce Health Outcome Gaps

Tuesday, May 15, 2018
JW Marriott Indianapolis
Indianapolis, IN

 

Register for SAEM18 and sign up for the Consensus Conference!


There is substantial variability in the emergency care provided to acutely ill and injured children in both the pre-hospital and hospital settings. In addition, there are, substantial differences in available pediatric resources in different settings and sites. The overarching goal of this Consensus Conference is to develop the pediatric emergency medicine (PEM) research agenda for the next decade in order to reduce health outcome gaps in the treatment of acutely ill and injured children. 

Expected outcomes of the Consensus Conference fall into three overarching categories: 

1) To align PEM leaders across organizations and foster new leadership

2) To set a research agenda for PEM across all access points of the emergency care system, and help develop PEM expertise across all providers who care for acutely ill and injured children 

3) To integrate PEM research networks goals and objectives

Participants will be given materials to review prior to the conference in order to provide input into the research areas that will be discussed.

Priorities for Consensus: Take the Survey

In preparation for this conference, a working group of pediatric emergency medicine stakeholders has identified several potential subtopics within each of these five subject areas. Because there may not be enough time to discuss all of these topics during this Consensus Conference, we would like your input to prioritize these topics for discussion. We recognize that there are far more experts with interest in these topics than may be able to attend the conference. Even if you're not able to make it to Indianapolis, we welcome your input. We hope that you'll be able to help refine these themes and identify specific research questions. Please provide us with your feedback - this will serve as a basis for an enlightening discussion on the day of the conference. We appreciate your help!
