Emergency Medical Services for Children
In Kansas, injuries are the leading killer of children and youth. During this century, injury has replaced infectious disease as one of the greatest threats to children and is leading cause of disability. The costs associated with injury are a major drain on state resources. While Kansas has several impressive initiatives and programs that address specific types of injuries, there is a substantial need to develop enhance, and integrate emergency medical services for children (EMSC) initiatives at the local, regional and state level for the emergency care of children.
