Improving Pediatric Acute Care through Simulation

About this image...

To improve health outcomes and survival for acutely ill and injured infants and children through simulation-based interventions and quality improvement processes. 

The first phase of this work will describe, measure, and compare the factors associated with high quality care of a set of simulated infant patients across a spectrum of emergency department teams. 

This information will be used to develop multifaceted simulation-based education and quality improvement interventions. 

This work will connect community emergency departments with tertiary care children’s hospitals. This will result in improved access to pediatric specific expertise in a broad range of topics in addition to medical care including pediatric trauma, child abuse, behavioral health/pediatric psych, and neonatal emergencies.
