EMS For Children Survey Begins Today

By Uncategorized

Greeting everyone! Just want everyone to know the EMS for Children Survey opens today.  Please take a few minutes and complete the survey. Participation in this important endeavor helps us advance forward and provide better training and care!

Good Afternoon!

The EMS for Children Program collects an annual survey of EMS agencies across the United States with support from the individual EMSC State Partnerships. I am asking for your help sharing this important nationwide quality improvement effort regarding care of pediatric patients with EMS agencies in your area. In order for us to best support EMS agencies, we are asking EMS agency leaders to complete a brief questionnaire so that we can learn more about EMS efforts to be prepared to care for ill or injured children. This survey is for EMS agencies that provide 911 response to EMS calls for service.

The questionnaire should only take 5-10 minutes to complete. To access the survey click on the link below:

Agencies will need to select “NY” as the state then the appropriate county from the drop-down menus, and then select the agency.

In past years, the responses from this survey have helped identify needs and provide resources for improving pediatric emergency care at the local and national level. To continue building on this momentum, we are relying on administrators from all EMS agencies to respond to this questionnaire. These responses will be used by the New York EMSC Program for quality improvement efforts in our assisting NYS EMS agencies and providers. De-identified data from agencies across the country will also be combined to review progress and provide support for integrating the needs of children into our overall emergency care systems.

The questionnaire is conducted via a secure web-based system and participation is voluntary, but greatly appreciated. A downloadable/printable PDF version is available on the website through the link above if you wish to review the questionnaire before completing it online.

I would like to thank you in advance for your assistance with this project. I know how busy you are, and greatly appreciate you taking the time to assist us with this valuable information! Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions about this project.
