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

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
