Safety Events in the Emergency Medical Services for Children
We are conducting research on the determinants of safety events and suboptimal care in emergency care services delivered to children. In the early course of our research, we have come to recognize that there are substantial differences in the reasons for EMS-C response in urban versus rural areas. Our team is looking for a student with solid statistical programming skills to evaluate data held by the Oregon State Emergency Services to characterize urban-rural differences in reason for call, field diagnosis, and treatment and transport. This research project is sufficiently complex to support an PHPM 504 internship or an MPH thesis. The student research assistant would work with co-investigators from the OHSU Departments of OB/GYN (Jeanne Marie-Guise, MD, MPH), Emergency Medicine (Jon Jui, MD, MPH and Matthew Hansen, MD, MPH), and Public Health & Preventive Medicine (Bill Lambert, PhD) to more specifically define the research questions, assemble the analysis plan, and conduct the analysis.
