Pediatric Readiness Recognition Programs Collaborative
Pediatric readiness recognition programs are state-based programs that honor and acknowledge emergency departments (EDs) and prehospital agencies for achieving certain standards in pediatric emergency care. These programs help encourage adherence to pediatric emergency care guidelines and contribute to the development of a well-organized system of care for ill and injured children.
With support from the EMSC Innovation and Improvement Center and the Pediatric Pandemic Network, the Pediatric Readiness Recognition Programs Collaborative (PRRPC) will help EMSC State Partnership Program teams accelerate their recognition program efforts through shared learning, collaboration, and improvement science. The 16-month collaborative will help with both establishing new recognition programs and enhancing existing programs.
