Pediatric Readiness 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).

Critical Crossroads: Pediatric Mental Health Care in the ED

This toolkit contains literature references and tools that can be used by hospitals to support the creation of care pathways to improve the identification and management of children and adolescents who present to the ED in a mental health crisis.

Pediatric Disaster Preparedness

Disaster preparedness is built on and dependent upon pediatric emergency systems of care that operate effectively day-to-day. Emergency care providers in both the prehospital and emergency department (ED) settings must have appropriate pediatric equipment and supplies, medical oversight, protocols and guidelines, and training in the care of children.
