Charlotte, Houston, and Milwaukee Prehospital EMS Research Node Center (CHaMP)
Charlotte, Houston, and Milwaukee Prehospital (CHaMP) is a node of PECARN composed of three diverse EMS agencies that collectively respond to nearly 350,000 EMS calls per year including 25,000 pediatric calls. Our Mission is to conduct innovative and relevant collaborative pediatric prehospital research.
The three CHaMP EMS affiliates are dedicated to providing high-quality prehospital care and believe that research is an important aspect of providing high-quality care. Each agency has previously participated in successful prehospital randomized clinical trials and has cultivated a culture that values research. Together, the CHaMP investigators and EMS agencies aim to find the answers to important questions that will improve the health of children who access the emergency response system.
The CHaMP Investigators are also dedicated to increasing the scope, quality, and quantity of pediatric EMS research. Therefore, CHaMP is developing online research education as well as promoting opportunities and science through our Facebook page.
This project is supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) Targeted Issues grant program, Grant No. H34MC26201 for $900,000.
