PPN logo

The Disaster Networking Collaborative (DNC), coordinated by the Pediatric Pandemic Network (PPN), aims to support children's hospitals in preparing for and responding to disasters, including pandemics. The DNC recognizes the unique vulnerabilities of children and adolescents and aims to address their physical, mental, and social needs during emergencies.

The DNC is a 10-month Quality Improvement (QI) collaborative that engages healthcare leaders in networking opportunities and the identification of evidence-based practices. It encourages collaboration among diverse healthcare practitioners to integrate the needs of children into emergency care systems. By sharing best practices and cost-effective solutions, the collaborative seeks to enhance the infrastructure of children's hospitals to better handle disasters.
