Emergency Medical Services For Children Day
The Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC) program is a US federal government health initiative. It is administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), and the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB). Its aim is to reduce child and youth disability and death due to severe illness or injury by increasing awareness among health professionals, provider and planners and the general public of the special (physiological and psychological) needs of children receiving emergency medical care.

The mission of the EMSC program is to reduce child and youth mortality and morbidity resulting from illness or trauma. Long-term success is measured by assessing the quality of pediatric emergency care provided in the prehospital and hospital settings, and integrating pediatric emergency care within the larger emergency medical service (EMS) system. In 2012, the federal EMSC Program initiated development of a second generation of PMs. Three new EMS-based measures, developed by HRSA, the National EMSC Data Analysis Resource Center, and subject matter experts, and following two rounds of public comment, become active in 2017.
