For the past 35 years, Dr. van der Jagt has provided a broad and diverse spectrum of pediatric care including primary care, pediatric critical care, pediatric hospital medicine, pediatric transport medicine and pediatric procedural sedation.

Research

Dr. van der Jagt's current primary research interests are in Pediatric Resuscitation,, Pediatric Pain/Sedation Management, Pediatric Hospital Medicine, Quality Improvement and Pediatric Simulation in Healthcare. As a member of the national American Heart Association Pediatric Sub-Committee for about 10 years, he helped evaluate the scientific evidence underlying the international guidelines for pediatric resuscitation which are reviewed every five years. In addition, his scholarly work has included not only formal participation in resuscitation research (e.g. as site investigator of the THAPCA project), but also in the use of simulation methods for educating the healthcare community in the management of acute emergency events in children, including resuscitation..He has been involved in numerous local quality improvement projects in the hospital setting and is currently developing active research in the indications for Pediatric Rapid Response Teams.
