Major Contributions in Pediatric Trauma Research

Our pediatric trauma surgeons and physicians at Arkansas Children’s are actively increasing the capacity to serve children and families throughout Arkansas and beyond. With a focus on scholarly research, our team is defining national standards of care for pediatric injuries. Through our findings, fellowship-trained pediatric specialists provide the latest education and training efforts that improve the skills of community providers across diverse professions. In addition, we help educate parents and families to prevent injuries before they occur. 

Evidence-based Research Programs

Our trauma specialists use an evidence-based tool, Screening and Brief Intervention and Referral for Treatment (SBIRT), which identifies at-risk teens for unsafe behavior such as substance or alcohol abuse. In addition, our expert team at Arkansas Children’s is leading the way in research for the treatment of solid organ injury.
