The PTCIB supports research and research training in pediatric trauma, injury, and critical illness across the continuum of care. These efforts include:
- Research on the prevention, treatment, management, and outcomes of physical and psychological trauma and the surgical, medical, psychosocial, and systems interventions needed to improve outcomes for critically ill and injured children and youth .
- Studies of the continuum of psychosocial, behavioral, biological, and physiological influences that affect child health outcomes in trauma, injury, and acute care.
- Basic, clinical, and translational studies that explore short- and long-term consequences of such traumatic experiences as natural and man-made disasters, acute forms of child maltreatment, violence, and exposure to violence .
- Research linking the science of pediatric emergency and critical care medicine to the epidemiology, prevention, and treatment of trauma and injury in infants, children and adolescents.
