About the Toolkit

Watch this 20-minute video to learn how to navigate the Toolkit.

The NPRP Toolkit content is organized by the seven domains of pediatric readiness: Administration and Coordination; Healthcare Provider Competencies; Quality Improvement; Policies and Procedures; Patient Safety; Support Services; and Equipment, Supplies, and Medications. The tools and resources align with the joint policy statement “Pediatric Readiness in the Emergency Department” and will assist pediatric emergency care providers to better understand and achieve the components of pediatric readiness in their emergency department (as highlighted in the NPRP Assessment).

The NPRP Toolkit also provides support and recommendations for other stakeholders involved in pediatric emergency care such as hospital directors, quality improvement leaders, family advisory network personnel, caregivers, and patients.


The materials included in this Toolkit will be updated periodically to ensure the latest recommendations and guidelines are included. Sign in or create an account to stay connected to receive notifications when new materials are added and help ensure we are meeting the needs of all users.
