Pediatric Injury: For Researchers and Health Care Providers
- Safe Kids USA is nationwide network of organizations working to prevent unintentional childhood injury. Safe Kids educates families, provides safety devices to families in need, and advocates for better laws to help keep children safe, healthy, and out of the emergency room.
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) National Action Plan for Child Injury Prevention (PDF - 8.69 MB) is an agenda to prevent injuries and promote the safety of children and adolescents in the United States.
- The NICHD’s Collaborative Pediatric Critical Care Research Network (CPCCRN) is a national resource for studying the scientific bases of pediatric critical care medicine. The CPCCRN provides the infrastructure needed to pursue rigorous clinical trials and descriptive studies in pediatric critical care medicine.
- Medical Rehabilitation Research Infrastructure Network (MRRIN) is funded through the NICHD’s National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (NCMRR) with additional support from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. The MRRIN builds research infrastructure in medical rehabilitation by providing investigators with access to expertise, courses and workshops, technologies, and other collaborative opportunities from allied disciplines such as neuroscience, engineering, applied behavior, and the social sciences.
- University of Pittsburgh’s Comprehensive Opportunities in Rehabilitation Research Training (CORRT) is a Multicenter Career Development Program for Physical and Occupational Therapists. It provides funding for new investigators to acquire the research skills necessary to become independent investigators in rehabilitation approaches. It is funded by the NICHD’s National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (NCMRR) and NINDS.
- The NICHD-supported Pediatric Critical Care Scientist Development Program (PCCSDP) is a national faculty training program that develops successful pediatric critical care physician scientists. The goal of the PCCSDP is to increase the number of highly trained, successfully funded, and sustainable pediatric critical care physician scientists who will do research to enhance the scientific understanding, clinical management, and rehabilitation of critical illness in children.
- The NICHD-supported Rehabilitation Medicine Scientist Training Program (RMSTP) provides research training, mentorship, and career development support for those physiatrists committed to developing productive careers in academic medicine and research. The ultimate aim of the RMSTP is to increase the number of rigorously trained, extramurally competitive, and scientifically productive faculty members in physical medicine and rehabilitation departments who can contribute to the continued development of physiatric research specifically and rehabilitation science in general.
- The NICHD and NINDS-supported Rehabilitation Research Career Development (RRCD) Program at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston educates and trains future rehabilitation scientists.
