Pediatric Trauma . . .

. . . Our Major Focus

its beginning
Its Beginning . . .

Recognizing the serious need for education and training in the areas of pediatric trauma and injury prevention, the Kiwanis Cal-Nev-Ha Foundation established the Pediatric Trauma Program in 1994.

our mission
Our Mission . . .

"To develop local projects, which will reduce the number of children in our district who are killed or injured by trauma."

why ptp
Why PTP?
  • Unintentional injury remains the #1 killer of children age 14 and under in the U.S.
  • Unintentional injury kills more kids every year than any other cause – including disease, homicide and suicide!
slide6

Why PTP?

  • These injuries cost society $157 billion1 annually!
  • 90% of these injuries could be prevented!

1 Includes direct medical costs, future earnings lost and lost quality of life

slide7

How Do We Address These Needs?

  • Partner Hospitals
    • The Foundation’s partnership with six children’s hospitals connects the Kiwanis family to the issue of Pediatric Trauma
    • Utilizing the knowledge and expertise of our partner hospitals, we identify projects the Kiwanis family can undertake to address the issue of Pediatric Trauma

What is PediatricEmergency Medicine?

  • Developed in 1992
  • 1,446 PEM physicians (as of 2008)
  • One qualified PEM physician for every 22,000 children visiting the ER!
slide17

PEM Physicians . . .

  • Specialize in the care of acutely ill or injured children and teens
  • Treat a wide range of medical emergencies that require immediate attention and are often life threatening
  • Meet the unique medical needs of children, including giving medications and using equipment in specific ways
  • Diagnose problems in distressed, uncooperative children
slide18

Why is This Important?

  • One third of the approximately 99 million ER visits each year is for a child
  • Many not receiving appropriate or timely care due to the staff’s lack of pediatric training and experience
slide19

Why is This Important?

  • Immediate access to quality pediatric emergency medical care is critical!
  • “The Golden Hour”
  • Babies and children are not “little people” - Their needs are vastly different than an adult’s need
slide20

How Does Kiwanis Fit In?

The Foundation provides funding to train a physician in Pediatric Emergency Medicine; nearly $100,000 a year!

slide21

Then What?

  • Our Kiwanis Doctor travels throughout the CNH District training other doctors, nurses and first responders
  • Focus on outlying areas within the District; Yuba City, El Centro, Barstow
slide22

The Result

The long-term impact of this training will save countless children whose lives might otherwise be lost.

slide23

News is Spreading!

As a result of our Foundation’s commitment to fund the first fellow, the hospital was able to fund an additional fellow . . .from Japan!

He is the first doctor in Japan with PEM training!

slide34

How to Distribute Helmets

If distributing helmets at a community event, remember the following . . .

  • Never distribute helmets directly to the child; partner with another agency/organization trained to properly size helmets
  • Don’t just give away the helmet; have the child earn the helmet by participating in a safety class, bicycle rodeo, etc.
slide35

Child Safety Seats90% - 95% of child safety seats are used or installed incorrectly!

  • Educate the community on Child Safety Seat Laws
  • Recycle (not re-use!) sub-standard safety seats
