Background:
 
Center for Prehospital Pediatrics and Emergency Research (CPPER)
Located within the Division of Emergency Medicine at Children's National
Medical Center, The Center for Prehospital Pediatrics and Emergency
Research (IPPER) serves as an advocate for Emergency Medical Services for
Children (EMSC). The Institute was conceived in order to better meet the
unique needs of children. During its tenure, the Institute has developed
several programs and products and implemented several initiatives to
improve the care of critically ill and injured children and provide
resources to the national EMSC community. In so doing the Institute has
worked to promote better care for children in the emergency setting not
only in the region, but also nationwide.
 
WBCARN/PECARN
The Washington Boston Chicago Applied Research Node (WBCARN) based at
Children¹s National Medical Center is one of six nodes that comprise the
organizational structure of the national Pediatric Emergency Care Applied
Research Network (PECARN) PECARN is the first federally- funded pediatric
emergency medicine research network, consisting of 18 hospital emergency
departments dedicated to rigorous, multi-institutional research on the
prevention, management and rehabilitation of acute illness and injury in
children. The goal of this network is to provide a framework for
conducting meaningful and rigorous pediatric research. Since its inception
in 2001, PECARN has demonstrated high quality pediatric emergency medicine
research. PECARN has implemented seven full projects; including over 10
federally funded studies that include 4 randomized controlled trials. The
resources of the network include a well-established infrastructure, which
encompass 18 funded site investigators collectively representing 76
specialties, and areas of expertise that range the spectrum of EMSC
research, including bioethics, biostatistics and epidemiology. Included
among the resources offered by PECARN is a dedicated governance structure
that maintains stringent project oversight and management to monitor
quality assurance and provide additional data management and analysis
support.
 The WBCARN node is made up of 1 research node center, 2 regional hospital
emergency department affiliates (HEDAs). Children¹s National Medical
Center serves as the research node center for the following HEDAs- Boston
Children¹s Hospital, Lurie Children¹s Hospital of Chicago. WBCARN¹s
hospitals include urban and suburban, academic and non-academic
institutions, dedicated children¹s emergency departments as well as
pediatric emergency departments embedded in adult centers. WBCARN
hospitals collectively serve over 200,000 patients per year. Patients
served by these hospitals represent a broad range of racial and ethnic as
well as socio-economic diversity.
 
Academic Associate Program
The program is meant to represent a unique opportunity for students to
directly participate in the performance of clinical research, while also
observing overall ED operations and interacting with physicians, nurses,
and other health care personnel.
 
€ Students will gain research experience working in the
emergency department that will serve them in their decision-making in
developing a career in public health and/or medicine
€ Students will be exposed to the practical application of
research to provide critical context and texture to research theory they
may have received in the classroom.
€ The CNMC ED (CPPER and WBCARN) offers a broad diversity of
research from basic observational studies to complex randomized controlled
trials thereby exposing students to the full spectrum of research
applications in a single clinical setting.
€ It has been shown that students involved in research
activities during training are more likely to continue a career in
research when mentorship has been established. Motivated students will
have the opportunity to develop mentor/mentee relationship with faculty
and clinical staff which, given appropriate motivation on the part of each
individual student, could result in graduate school/professional
recommendation letters from faculty and the opportunity to develop an
individual research project and/or work in an externship capacity with an
individual faculty member on an existing research protocol.
 
Research Experience
 
The individual will work directly with a project coordinator and research
assistant to manage the day to day activities of the various studies.
These include, but are not limited to:
 
 
Administrative Tasks:
€ Filing
€ Photocopying
€ Literature Reviews
 
Research Development:
€ Data entry
€ Abstracting medical records
€ Conducting telephone follow-up calls
€ Conducting interviews of families
€ Real time enrollment of families into research studies
€ Data Collection
€ Data Entry
€ Study promotion and awareness in the emergency department
 
Professional Development:
€ Will receive letter of recommendation from mentor (if
attendance expectations are met)
€ Shadowing physicians during their ED shift
€ Biweekly meetings with clinical mentor (Attending Physician)
€ Opportunities for clinical observation in designated areas
of the Hospital for all students
€ Monthly luncheons with all ED/PECARN interns and
participating faculty
€ Formal training in:
€ Human subjects and protections
€ Laboratory safety
€ Responsible conduct of research
 
 
Attendance is very important to this program. Interns are expected to
commit no less than 10 hours per week. Interns must complete the entire
12 week program to receive recommendation letter.
