Boston Children's is actively involved in conducting research into the causes and best treatments for childhood injury. Currently, we are:

  • examining how best to care for children with a ruptured spleen

  • collaborating with other hospitals to determine the long-term problems children face after suffering a broken pelvis

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

  • identifying which blood tests and x-rays are necessary during emergency care to ensure patient safety and maximize emergency department efficiency

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
