Our emergency medicine team is dedicated to improving the healthcare outcomes of children with acute illnesses and injuries. To accomplish this, we collaborate with pediatric specialists at Cohen Children’s and other nationally-recognized pediatric centers around the country in both multicenter studies and meaningful clinical trials. Our research curriculum is built upon the understanding that medicine is a field of continuous advances that rely on sophisticated and collaborative research.
What we're working on
We are currently seeking to understand the efficacy of a slow release anti-nausea/vomiting medication in our adolescent population. We are the primary pediatric site in a randomized, placebo-controlled, phase 3 trial of RHB-102 (Ondansetron 24 mg bimodal release tablets) for vomiting due to presumed acute gastroenteritis or gastritis.
We are also in the midst of a PCORI (Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute) grant funded project with Pittsburgh Children’s Hospital. Our aim is to utilize clinical decision support to improve detection of child abuse in the emergency department.
