National Pediatric Readiness Project

Website hosted by the Emergency Medical Services for Children National Resource Center. (2013). National Pediatric Readiness Project.

The National Pediatric Readiness Project is a multi-phase quality improvement initiative to ensure that all U.S. emergency departments (ED) have the essential guidelines and resources in place to provide effective emergency care to children. The project is a partnership of the Emergency Medical Services for Children/ Health Resources and Services Administration, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Emergency Nurses Association, and the American College of Emergency Physicians. The first phase of this project was a national assessment of EDs' readiness to care for children. Results for each state and U.S. territory are available, and include their overall assessment response rate; the median pediatric readiness score; a list of meetings, conferences, and publications related to project implementation; and a list of the National Pediatric Readiness State Team members.
