Evaluation Services for the Emergency Medical Services for Children Program

Overview

Congress established the Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) program in 1984 to expand and improve emergency medical services for children who need treatment for trauma or critical care. Since the program’s creation, its annual budget has increased to approximately $22 million to support research, systems improvements, and technical assistance grants across six programs in all states, the U.S. territories, and the Freely Associated States. The program seeks to reduce childhood death and disability caused by severe illness and injury by enhancing the pediatric capability of systems. This 5-year mixed-methods study evaluates the program’s efforts.

During the base period, Insight is completing planning activities for the evaluation of the EMSC program portfolio, developing a prospective evaluation design and plan, conducting a literature review, developing data collection tools, and developing new program performance measures. Insight is also conducting a retrospective evaluation of previous EMSC program activities and impacts.
