New Frontiers in Brain Injury Treatment and Prevention

Boston Children's Hospital is actively involved in conducting research into the causes of, and best treatments for, childhood brain and head injury. Areas of research include:

  • Identifying possible long-term problems for infants who have suffered an injury.

  • Analyzing differences in how injured children are cared for in hospitals around New England and the nation to help determine best practices.

  • Identifying children and families who are at risk for developing emotional problems or post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSS) after injury.

  • Identifying what blood tests and x-rays are necessary during emergency care to ensure patient safety and maximize emergency department efficiency.

To support the trauma team's research efforts, Boston Children's Hospital maintains a data registry of more than 12,000 injured patients. This information is also used to identify the ways in which children are being hurt and to better direct our efforts to prevent injuries among New England's children.
