The State Partnership grants fund EMS state agencies to focus on the following performance measures:

1.

Ensure operational capacity to provide pediatric emergency care by guaranteeing pre-hospital provider agencies have on-line and off-line pediatric medical direction; pre-hospital providers agencies have essential pediatric equipment and supplies; implement a state-wide, territorial, or regional facility recognition program for hospitals that are able to stabilize and/or manage pediatric emergencies; and hospitals have written inter-facility transfer guidelines and agreements that specify alternate sites that have the capabilities to meet the clinical needs of critically ill and injured pediatric patients.


2.

Adopt requirements by states/territories for pediatric emergency education for the recertification of paramedics.


3.

Establish permanence of EMSC in each state/territory

National EMSC Data Analysis Resource Center

NEDARC provides technical assistance, training workshops, and site visits in order to assist EMSC projects and state EMS offices develop their capabilities to collect, analyze, and utilize EMS data.

NEDARC provided the foundation from which the NEMSIS Technical Assistance Center was created and is an example of collaboration between EMSC and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)

Targeted Issues Grants
Targeted Issues grants are intended to address specific needs or concerns in the field of pediatric emergency care that transcend state boundaries.

Typically the projects result in a new product or resource or the demonstration of the effectiveness of a model system component or service of value to the nation.

Types of projects that have been funded within this category include developing model pediatric components for state disaster plans, screening and secondary prevention for psychological sequelae of pediatric injury, basic emergency lifesaving skills in schools, and emergency preparedness for infants with significant heart disease.

Network Development Demonstration Project (NDDP)

Projects are cooperative agreements that demonstrate a system of regional applied pediatric emergency medical services centers designed to expand and improve emergency services for children who need treatment for trauma or critical care.

Awardees are linked together in a network to demonstrate a capacity to conduct multi-site studies on issued relating to the management of pediatric events that occur in hospitals as well as in transport.
