  1. The audience member will be familiar with the new PTS guidelines and Systematic Reviews published and/or in press this year.
  2. The listener can identify the results of the EAST Alcohol Screening systematic review, and consider these in context of their own practice.
  3. Identify the location and content structure of the Pediatric Trauma Guidelines HUB.
Session Description:
As we continue to mature as a guidelines committee, it is inherent that our wider membership is aware of what new guidelines our society is publishing. This not only informs our members but spreads the word to the wider trauma community. Our collaboration with EAST also allows us to hear from experts not the adult side that have guidelines that are not pediatric based, but may have an important bearing that we may miss otherwise. Finally, we wish to demonstrate our new guidelines hub, to show what features members can use.

  1. To identify and understand key terms, concepts, definitions, facilitators and barriers in establishing a coordinated pediatric disaster response.
  2. To identify strategies for implementing a coordinated regional pediatric disaster response.
  3. To provide cutting edge best practices resources, tools and training for pediatric disaster preparedness that have emerged as a result of the effort.
  4. To discuss the Hurricane Katrina experience, the changes it inspired to disaster medicine, and applications to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Session Description:
In 2019, the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response funded two pilot sites to create centers of excellence for comprehensive regional pediatric disaster management: Eastern Great Lakes Pediatric Consortium for Disaster Response led by University Hospitals Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital of Cleveland and the Western Region Alliance for Pediatric Emergency Management led by University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Health System and UCSF Children’s Hospitals. The goal of the funding was to establish two pediatric disaster centers of excellence to enhance capacity of regional trauma centers to address the needs of children in the event of a disaster. As part of the effort, the two sites have included many of the western and mid-west states pediatric medical centers, disaster coalitions, large community health care systems, representatives from state and local agencies, and coalition partners. The groups include subject matter expertise in Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive materials (CBRN), trauma, burns, disaster mental health, telemedicine, education, EMS, obstetrics, ethics and law. Training was developed to enhance the capacity and capabilities for responding to pediatric patients involved in mass casualty events. Participants will learn about the Hurricane Katrina experience and its resulting implications to disaster medicine.

Session III: Pediatric TBI- Keep Your Program Up To Date!
Roberta L. Miller, MSN Roberta L. Miller, MSN

  1. To provide practical tools to incorporate the newest BTF guidelines data into their program.
  2. The listener should be able to engage nursing and rehabilitation staff to help improve their program outcomes.
Session Description:
The most recent Brain Trauma Foundation 2019 guidelines are an exhaustive, but cumbersome and difficult to implement study of the treatment of severe TBI in children. They also represent an important, but overall small population of patients we see in our programs. While a broad topic, worthy of a week-long conference alone, TBI care can be broken down into digestible elements where the audience can hear the latest updates and take these pieces back to help improve their programs.

Each Speaker will have 10 minutes, with any remaining time for questions and discussion. The short time frame is meant to really focus on practical pearls that can inspire the audience member to examined their own practice and see if an update is needed. In addition, the speakers will highlight resources the audience can reference later to support their efforts.

Session VI: Implementation Science in Pediatric Trauma Care: From Conceptual Frameworks to Case Studies
Ankush Gosain, MD, PhD Ankush Gosain, MD, PhD
Lebonheur Children's Hospital Level I Trauma Center, Memphis, TN

  1. Identify and understand relevant terms, definitions, concepts, models, and methodological approaches in implementation science.
  2. Identify strategies for increasing the adoption, implementation and sustainability of evidence-based practices in pediatric trauma care.
  3. Identify methods for evaluating programs, including establishing and assessing indicators of success for new practices implemented.
Session Description
This session will provide an overview of implementation science concepts and their use in healthcare. Conceptual frameworks, terminology, best practices, and program evaluation methods used in the field of implementation science will be discussed along with how they apply to the pediatric trauma care setting. Multiple case reports will be presented discussing implementation of an evidence-based practice in a pediatric trauma center. Cases will highlight strategies for adopting new practices, barriers and facilitators of implementation, and evaluation processes and outcomes. Presenters will discuss how specific practices introduced were either successfully or unsuccessfully implemented in the clinical setting, as well as approaches to modifying practices to increase sustainability, fidelity, and adoption of new practices. Finally, the final speaker will summarize lessons learned from the case reports and how they underscore important concepts in designing programs than can be robustly evaluated.
