The RCPCH Research Projects Team works collaboratively with organisations and multidisciplinary teams to improve the health services available for children in the UK.
Clinical Outcome Review Programme: Child Health Reviews-UK (CHR-UK)
Our CHR-UK programme of work aims to assess child mortality and serious morbidity in order to improve the rates of childhood preventable deaths within the UK.
UK-WHO Growth Charts
The UK-WHO growth charts can be used to monitor growth as an important measure of child health in 0-4 year olds. The RCPCH growth charts expert working group have completed the development of an adolescent growth chart for 4-18 year olds.
Allergy Care Pathways
The Allergy Care Pathways have been produced for parents/carers and healthcare professionals. The pathways provide a step-by-step guidance for both groups on how to manage serious allergy cases in children.
Urgent and Emergency Care Patient Reported Experience Measure (PREM)
The Urgent and Emergency Care PREM was created as a pilot survey to assess the paediatric patient experience within emergency centres in England. The responses have been analysed and a report is in development; the report will include key recommendations about how to use the measure effectively.
Medicines for Children: Information for parents and carers
Medicines for Children gives practical, reliable and evidence-based information to parents and carers about giving medicines to their child. Leaflets that can be read on-screen or downloaded and friendly videos are produced by paediatricians and pharmacists, tested by a panel of parents and certified by the Information Standard. This is a partnership project of the College, Neonatal and Paediatric Pharmacists Group and children’s charity WellChild.
infoKID - information for parents and carers about children's kidney conditions
Launching in late 2013, infoKID will be an online information resource for families covering a range of paediatric kidney conditions, symptoms and complications, tests and treatments. Information is based on the needs of parents and carers, produced over a multi-stage process with input from multidisciplinary professional teams and certified by the Information Standard. Funded by the British Kidney Patient Association, this is a partnership project of the College, BKPA and British Association of Paediatric Nephrology.
