Improving Child Health
The College is committed to improving the health of children everywhere by supporting members and policymakers to build on evidence-based practice.
Our current priorities are making the NHS a better place for children and young people, child mortality, public health and child protection.
We support these through programmes in research and surveilliance, clinical and service standards, quality improvement, clinical audit and policy. We involve children, young people and families in all of our work.
Working with child health experts, we have developed policy recommendations to tackle premature mortality in the UK.
A two-year programme led by the RCPCH to develop and trial a suite of quality improvement techniques.
