Welcome to the Great Lakes Node of the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied
Research Network (PECARN)
Ambulance crews and emergency rooms are able to give Michigan kids better, more coordinated and more advanced emergency medical care, thanks to a coalition of Midwestern hospitals.
Led by the University of Michigan, GLEMSCRN is one of only six groups nationwide funded for research, training and education in pediatric emergency medicine. The network also includes Children's Hospital of Michigan (Detroit) and Nationwide Children’s Hospital (Columbus, OH).
Network members are dedicated to improving health care for ill and injured children by:
performing meaningful and rigorous research to determine optimal strategies to promote health in the preventive, prehospital and hospital phases of care; and
collaborating with EMS agencies and community groups to address emergency care needs; and collaborating with other research nodes to build rigorous and widely applicable research.
