Actions Taken

NIH Creates Office of Emergency Care Research

Sparked by the release of three 2006 IOM reports – Emergency Care for Children: Growing Pains, Hospital-Based Emergency Care: At the Breaking Point, and Emergency Medical Services At the Crossroads – the NIH began an effort to examine its research activities in emergency medicine and to hear from investigators and stakeholders in the field. The IOM reports found the emergency medical system to be overburdened, underfunded, and highly fragmented. The NIH effort led to the creation in 2012 of the Office of Emergency Care Research.
