When embarking on a road trip to Disney World, it's a given that you would ensure young kids are securely seated in an appropriate car seat. It's equally crucial to acknowledge that ambulances are susceptible to accidents, putting passengers at risk of injury. Therefore, it's vital for all passengers to be properly restrained. Just as there are safety guidelines and standards for child restraint in standard passenger vehicles, similar guidelines exist for transporting pediatric patients in ambulances. Unfortunately, these guidelines aren't always well understood or followed.

Join us as we continue the webinar series "Tools for EMS to Operationalize Evidence-Based Care" this time with Kathleen Adelgais, MD, MPH/MSPH, who will discuss a new NEMSQA safety measure. She will shed light on why it's so important to ensure the proper restraint of pediatric patients and how to effectively measure this critical safety practice.
