Are you a researcher?  You are invited to join the new Emergency
Medical Services for Children researcher listserv...

The National EMSC Data and Analysis Resource Center
(NEDARC), in  collaboration with the EMSC National Resource
Center (EMSC NRC) (both federally funded by the  EMSC program
of Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Human  Resources and
Services Administration), has launched a new  listserv designed to
meet the communication needs of researchers  working on EMSC
objectives.  This listserv is aimed at fostering collegial
collaborations and information exchange, including  postings of
interest to researchers related to funding, workshops,
conferences, calls for abstracts, methodologies, research design,
ethical issues, and similar topics.  This is not a forum for clinical or
politically-motivated discussions.  Our goal is to expand the
infrastructure of EMSC research and increase collaboration among
researchers from diverse backgrounds who can learn from each
other and thus be inspired to enhance the field, increasing both the
quality and quantity of EMSC-related research.

We define EMSC research as multidisciplinary, so that
researchers would come from various medical and nursing
subspecialties (critical care, emergency medicine, EMS,
pediatrics,  PEM, psychiatry, trauma, etc.) and pre-hospital care,
as well as  from health economics, sociology, anthropology,
psychology,  social work, etc.  Researchers who are interested in
or currently  conducting research related to emergency medical
services for  children (i.e., prevention, clinical issues, analyses of
social  interactions, health delivery systems, quality and cost,
mental and physical health services related to emergency care,
rehabilitation, etc.) are invited to join this listserv.


All messages are non-mime digested at 1:00 AM and delivered to
all. The messages are unmoderated and only members can post to
the list. We encourage you to keep the tone professional and
respect your colleagues as equal partners in the research
enterprise.  Please avoid "flaming", "SHOUTING" and other on-line
incivilities.  In addition, please remember that the EMSC program,
the NRC and NEDARC, are federally funded, so that statements
that may jeopardize future funding or support are strongly
