San Francisco, CA
Date Posted: May 6, 2015
Organization: UCSF Pediatric Emergency Department
Position: Research Assistant
Address: 1975 4th St., San Francisco, CA 94158
Information about position:
My name is Bryan Cooper-Sood and I'm an ex-UCSF pediatric resident and now work in the neonatal ICU at UCSF (as well as other hospitals). I'm going to be one of the fellows at Children's Hospital Oakland in pediatric emergency medicine starting in July. I'm currently conducting a research project in the UCSF peds ED at Mission Bay and I'm looking for medical student volunteers who would like to help out and in doing so, get some experience doing research and hopefully get something published if we find the result we are hoping for. The project aims to use down-time that families experience in the ED to educate them surrounding car seats and restraint devices. Specifically, we identify otherwise normal children (no special requirements in terms of restraint devices while riding in a car) and after getting their consent, ask their parents to take a short, 6-question quiz and then read a 1 page handout afterwards, which contains the answers to the quiz and other information. The quiz contains question about age, height, and weight requirements, etc, recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, as to the proper use of car seats and booster seats for kids. We then call them 2-4 weeks later and give them the same quiz (to see if our intervention improved their understanding) and 5 additional questions trying to measure if their attitudes and actions re: car seats have changed.
We need med student volunteers to physically enroll patients in the study and also to call families for follow-up. The times are completely flexible as the ED is open 24/7.
How to apply: If you are interested, please send me an e-mail at CooperB@peds.ucsf.edu containing a bit of information about yourself (what year you are in, what your career interests might be, etc) and why you are interested in the project and we can discuss further.
