Transport Medicine
Chair's Letter
Dr Keith Meyer
Welcome to our new website!

There has never been a better time to be a part of the AAP Section on Transport Medicine. As a collaborative multispecialty group we have accomplished many things over the last few years. The recent 2014 Biannual Course on Neonatal and Pediatric Transport Medicine in San Diego was a huge success. We are especially proud of the hard work and dedication our section members and leadership pour into educational opportunities that help advance the safety and quality of transport. We are looking forward to the release of two new publications: The 4th edition of the Guidelines for Air and Ground Transport of Neonatal and Pediatric Patients (due summer 2015) as well as the 1st edition of Field Guide for Treatment of Neonatal and Pediatric Patients during Transport.

The recent collaborative efforts with quality metrics and translation to the GAMUT database will continue to evolve and promote safe practice. I encourage all members to please get involved. We would love to hear from you about new ideas, suggestions, projects, and research opportunities. Please plan on joining us for our section and scientific meetings that take place with the AAP NCE in Washington DC this October. I am thankful to be able to serve as your chairperson.
