Dr. Meaney is a nationally and internationally recognized pediatric resuscitation scientist and has provided over 40 presentations at national and international meetings and has published over 50 manuscripts. He has held leadership positions in the American Heart Association Emergency Cardiovascular Committee, the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) since 2008, and served as an external advisor to the World Health Organization’s Maternal Child Health division. Dr Meaney has driven paradigm shifts in resuscitation education and training in the resource-limited setting. He has developed, implemented and led training programs at 11 sites in 8 countries. Dr. Meaney’s identification of gaps in provider training in these environments has led to a global response for more research in this area. He currently serves as program lead of the Saving Children’s Lives, a which he developed in concert with other resuscitation educators and the American Heart Association. Saving Children’s Lives is a novel, multiple intervention implementation strategy of evidence-based practices to improve the quality of care of seriously ill or injured children at first level facilities. Since 2013, the SCL program has trained over 500 providers in Botswana, Tanzania and India. Data shows that SCL in Botswana has both increased provider knowledge and reduced pediatric mortality. Dr Meaney seeks to conduct the necessary research to pioneer, implement and evaluate relevant and practical solutions to improve acute care for children worldwide. His current focus is on improving the quality of care at the community-district hospital level. Through development of innovative practices and implementation strategies, Dr Meaney seeks to bring core elements of critical care to the children who need it most.
