Evaluating Systems of Pediatric Care in Remote and Frontier Alaska: Defining Next Steps for Improvement. More than 31 million children and adolescents access the emergency care system every year. Unfortunately, pediatric resources to provide optimal care for children are not always readily available where children live, play, and attend school. This is especially true in Alaska. With 75% of Alaskan communities not connected by roads to a hospital, travel is often expensive necessitating creative alternatives to assure access to essential pediatric services when an emergency occurs. Julie Rabeau, RN, EMSC State Partnership Regionalization of Care (SPROC) grantee, and Matthew Hirschfeld MD, PhD, medical director, Maternal Child Health Services at Alaska Native Medical Center, discussed challenges encountered in providing emergency care to children in frontier and remote areas of Alaska. A quality improvement initiative implemented through the SPROC grant focused on evaluating the continuum of care and identifying opportunities for improving the care of severely injured children was also highlighted. In addition, innovative approaches to improving aeromedical resource availability, as well as educational opportunities were shared.

The content for this webinar is appropriate for EMSC program managers, emergency department (ED) physicians and nurses, hospital administrators, ED directors, state health department and hospital regulators, trauma program coordinators and managers, EMS providers, health care planners, and others interested in improving access to pediatric specialty services in territorial, rural, frontier, and other regions where such care may be limited.

Keeping Our Children Safe in A Changing World. In an ever-changing world, children can be especially vulnerable to unexpected crisis events, such as active shooter incidents, acts of terrorism, and other natural or man-made disasters that strike without warning. This is especially true for children who are not under direct adult supervision at the time of crisis, such as while they are playing at the park, walking through the mall, or at a movie theater with friends. Additionally, many youth and young adults with special health care needs, including cognitive and behavioral challenges and mobility or special access needs, have varied levels of independence and may not be at home or school when a disaster occurs. When the unthinkable happens in your community, will your child know what to do to stay safe?

Many resources exist to help families and children prepare for disasters in the home or at school. But what resources are available to help prepare them to make the right decisions when they are on their own? This webinar was an interactive town-hall discussion where parents and caregivers learn about current and upcoming resources and engage in an open discussion with experts about their biggest concerns for their children and what can be done to help keep them safe.

The content for this webinar is appropriate for families; family advocacy groups; youth; organizations that develop or disseminate resources related to children and youth disaster preparedness, including children and youth with special health care needs; national professional organizations; and federal agencies, as well as others interested in improving pediatric emergency care.

Next Steps in Quality Improvement: Measuring Your ED Readiness Improvement – Peds Ready Assessment Portal Now Open. In 2013 - 2014, more than 4,100 hospitals participated in an assessment as part of the National Pediatric Readiness (Peds Ready) Project, a multi-phase quality improvement initiative to ensure that U.S. emergency departments (ED) have the essential guidelines and resources in place to provide effective emergency care to children. To assist EDs in measuring their progress in becoming ready for children, the Peds Ready Assessment Portal has been reopened. Participating in the reassessment provides an opportunity for all EDs to measure incremental changes and define next steps for improving their pediatric readiness. First time assessment participants will receive a baseline score regarding the pediatric readiness of their ED along with helpful resources to make improvements.

This webinar discussed the Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycle of quality improvement and its application to Pediatric Readiness efforts; defined the importance of regular assessment/monitoring of change as related to Pediatric Readiness initiatives; discussed the process for accessing and engaging in the assessment, listed information that will be provided to respondents upon completion of the assessment; and discussed potential next steps, based on reassessment findings, for reducing the gaps in pediatric emergency care in your ED.

The content for this webinar was appropriate for ED directors, ED physicians and nurses, hospital administrators, state EMSC Program managers, state health department and hospital regulators, health care planners, trauma program coordinators and managers, and others interested in improving pediatric emergency care.

National Pediatric Readiness Project: Preparing the Emergency Department to Provide Psychosocial Support to Children and Families in A Disaster. A recently published clinical report to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) noted that disasters affect the lives of millions of children every year and that children, as a group, are at an increased risk for psychosocial trauma and behavioral difficulties after a disaster. In 2013, the AAP, the American College of Emergency Physicians, the Emergency Nurses Association, and the EMSC Program collaborated jointly on a quality improvement initiative, the National Pediatric Readiness Project. The project initiated an assessment of more than 5,000 U.S. emergency departments (ED) and more than 4,100 facilities responded (83%). Results illustrated that less than half of all U.S. hospitals reported having written disaster plans addressing issues specific to the care of children.

In response to the Pediatric Readiness Assessment, a multidisciplinary workgroup was convened to create the Checklist of Essential Domains and Considerations for Every Hospital’s Disaster Preparedness Policies. Behavioral health was included as one of the 10 essential domains. This webinar discussed short- and long-term effects of disaster on the psychological functioning, emotional adjustment, health, and developmental trajectory of children; identified key elements in the behavioral health domain essential to the provision of psychosocial support to children and families in the aftermath of disaster; and described practical ways to incorporate behavior health policies and practices into disaster plans and embed them into everyday practice. Those planning to watch this archived webinar may find it helpful to review the Checklist. Users can download one of two versions of the Checklist: an electronic interactive pdf and a static, printable pdf.

The content for this webinar was appropriate for ED directors, ED physicians and nurses, disaster management specialists, community disaster planners, health care planners, hospital administrators, clinical managers, trauma program coordinators and managers, state EMSC Program managers, EMS providers, family members, as well as others interested in improving pediatric emergency care.

Continuing education through the Indian Health Service Clinical Support Center was available for physicians and nurses who attended the live presentation only. At the request of those who attended the live webinar, the EMSC NRC is making available a downloadable pdf version of the PowerPoint slides used by speakers during the webinar.
