EMSC Webcast – Kids in Disasters: Facing Our Challenges

The Health Resources and Services Administration’s Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) National Resource Center is hosting a live webcast on June 20 from 12:30-2:00pm Eastern entitled Kids in Disasters: Facing our Challenges.

This panel presentation will highlight two EMSC Targeted Issue projects – “A Novel Imaging System for Reunification of Children Separated during Disaster” and “Refining Pediatric Disaster Triage Algorithms and Education in the Prehospital Setting.” Project investigators will provide a brief overview of their work and highlight significant findings and implications for participants to consider as they strive to improve the provision of emergency care for children during disaster situations.

The webcast is designed for state managers, researchers, EMS providers, family members, and others interested in how to improve emergency medical services for children.
