Over the past few decades, the evidence generated to guide the care of acutely ill and injured children in emergency departments (EDs) globally has transitioned from retrospective case reports to large prospective research studies. This has further evolved into large, well-organized and well-funded pediatric emergency care (PEC) research networks. These networks have not only generated high-grade, precise, and generalizable evidence on which to base the care of acutely ill and inured children, they have also organized the implementation of this evidence to the bedside. Both pediatric and general emergency physicians have participated collaboratively in PEC research networks and there are lessons learned for all emergency care practitioners. In this presentation, Dr. Nathan Kuppermann will give a brief background of “early evidence” in pediatric care which was retrospective, single center and misleading. He will then incrementally demonstrate how PEC networks around the globe have developed, some of the paradigm-changing evidence they have generated, and how some of this evidence has been implemented into practice. Along the way, Dr. Kuppermann will describe challenges and barriers to developing such networks from their infancy to their adolescence, and the benefits of participating in these networks. Important take home points will be provided for investigators of all types and at all stages.
Discuss the field of Pediatric Emergency Medicine has developed and expanded in the past two decades, particularly through its involvement in collaborative research networks
Provide examples of the impactful research that has developed as a result, including research resulting from collaborations between pediatric and general emergency physicians.
Explain the challenges and intangible benefits of pediatric emergency care research
