CHaMP E-RNC Charlotte, Houston, Milwaukee Prehospital EMS Research Node

  • Buffalo, NY
  • Milwaukee, WI
  • Charlotte, NC
  • Houston, TX

Goals and Objectives

Develop an EMS Research Node Center (E-RNC) integrated with the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN) that will conduct innovative and significant prehospital-based pediatric research.

To accomplish this goal, we will complete the following objectives:

  • Establish the infrastructure for an E-RNC called Charlotte, Houston, and Milwaukee Prehospital (CHaMP) Research Node, which will include four EMSAs.
  • Contribute to the science of prehospital pediatric care through the submission of specific research concepts to PECARN.
  • Complete a pilot project within the project period that demonstrates the ability of the EMSAs to collect data.
  • Obtain funding for a specific large-scale project.

SPARC San Francisco-Oakland, Providence, Atlanta Research Collaborative

  • San Francisco, CA
  • Atlanta, GA
  • Providence, RI

Goals and Objectives

  • Organizational Infrastructure: rapidly build and maintain a strong, high functioning PECARN node, capable of performing excellent clinical research and contributing to all network activities.
  • Contribute to EMSC Research: conduct high quality, high impact pediatric emergency medicine research, across the spectrum of EMSC projects and settings.
  • Develop New PECARN Research Projects: across EMSC research of high impact/low incidence conditions, incorporating the EMSA into all of the node’s research processes, and especially building on the SPARC PIs’ strengths and research expertise – underrepresented research topics, e.g. sickle cell disease (Emory), behavioral health (UCSF) and substance use (Brown) disorders.
  • PECARN Registry and Data Linkage: contribute to PECARN’s current and future electronic data registry and linkage projects.
  • Knowledge Translation: SPARC will be a leader in dissemination and knowledge transfer, leveraging existing, successful methods and relationships.
  • Advance Early Stage Investigators: SPARC will foster the development of early stage investigators, both within the node and the PECARN network.
