Highlights of the Zuni Site Visit
CR visits the Zuni Comprehensive Community Health Center and completes a facility assessment. The Zuni Pueblo is home to the CR Cultural Liason, Norman Cooeyate. We enjoyed the beauty of the land and the spirit of the people.

Pediatric emergency physicians at the UNM Hospital Pediatric Emergency Department will soon have the capability to provide video consultation for critically ill and injured children at SRMC. The use of telemed consults will then expand to other facilities and ER's in the state of New Mexico.
Telemed Test Session Established
May 20th, 2013
Dr. Sara Skarbek-Borowska, CR Program Medical Director, has been collaborating with the UNM Center for Telehealth and Cybermedicine to expand the capabilities for pediatric consults via the transmission of video bed-side images of the patient's physical appearance and some internal structures. The image to the left is the portable polycom system that is brought to the patient bed-side and connects to the UNM PED designated computer via a secure connection using the Vidyo software.

Child Ready Program Overview
The UNM Division of Pediatric Emergency Medicine, NM EMSC and the UNM CNAH, were awarded a four-year grant (June 2102-2016) from the Health Resources and Services Administration and Emergency Medical Services for Children State Partnership Regionalization of Care Program to work with communities and tribes to design, develop, and disseminate a system of regionalized pediatric emergency care in tribal and rural areas of New Mexico and the border regions of Arizona, Colorado, Texas, and Mexico.
The program will primarily focus on the following four areas of intervention:
- Preparing communities to care for the ill or injured child
- Preparing facilities to care for the ill or injured child
- Preparing providers to care for the ill or injured child
- Conducting prevention activities to reduce the number of ill or injured children.
A national collaborative effortView More
to assess EDs available resources for the care of children...
The National Pediatric Readiness Project is a multi-phase quality improvement initiative to ensure that all U.S. emergency departments (ED) have the essential guidelines and resources in
place to provide effective emergency care to children.
The first phase of this
project will be a national assessment of EDs' readiness to care for children.
National PRP Purpose
The primary purpose of this project is three-fold:
(1) to establish a composite baseline of the nation's capacity to provide care to children in the ED,
(2) to create a foundation for EDs to engage in an ongoing quality improvement process that includes implementing the Guidelines for the Care of Children in the Emergency Department
(3) to establish a benchmark that measures an ED's improvement overtime.Visit Website
