PECARN is the first federally funded pediatric emergency medicine research network in the US. They conduct high-priority, multi-institutional research on the prevention and management of acute illnesses and injuries in children and adolescents. The current PECARN network includes six nodes, each with three hospital Emergency Departments (ED) and a Pre-Hospital Research Node with three EMS agencies. The hospitals represent over 1 million discrete ED visits a year.
Richard Ruddy, MD is the PI of one of the nodes, the Hospitals of the Midwest Emergency Research Node (HOMERUN) that includes University of Cincinnati/Cincinnati Children’s, Washington University/St. Louis Children’s and Medical College of Wisconsin/Milwaukee Children’s Hospital. It is funded through 2019. At Cincinnati Children’s, Lynn Babcock, MD, MS is the ED site PI. The node’s Emergency Medical Services (pre-hospital) site is at Cincinnati Children’s and Hamilton Schwartz, MD, MEd is the scientific advisor. In addition to contributing as one of the top enrolling sites in PECARN, Cincinnati Children’s has been a model for its data quality (nodal Administrator – Nicole McClanahan) and contributed to the development of new PEM investigators through the Mentoring Program – Jennifer Reed, MD (current K23), Todd Florin, MD, MSCE (UC – KL2) and Tara Rhine, MD, MS (new UC – KL2) scholars.
There have been over 75 publications and an outstanding track record on funded and completed grants. Some of the current active projects include:
