Connecting researchers and trainees to increase quantity, quality, and impact of research about care for children with chronic critical illness
A growing number of children survive serious illness but develop dependence on medical technologies and have repeated and prolonged hospitalizations. These “chronically critically ill” children are the sickest of children with medical complexity.
Johns Hopkins is home to the Pediatric Chronic Critical Illness (PCCI) Collaborative, an interdisciplinary group of individuals dedicated to research and practice that supports children with PCCI and their families. Researchers, clinicians and parents from around the United States meet regularly and collaborate on research projects related to PCCI.
Any researcher interested PCCI is invited to join the PCCI Collaborative. To get on our email list please send a request to Dr. Renee Boss.
