Quality improvement and clinical audit
Quality improvement (QI) projects and national clinical audits evaluate whether standards are being met and help improve the quality of care. We work with paediatric sub-specialty groups, paediatricians, clinical managers and networks - as well as children, young people and their families, to drive improvements.

Patient Reported Experience Measure (PREM)
PREMs measure the healthcare experience of patients and/or their carers.
The College has developed a suite of PREMs and implementation guidance for emergency care settings, including GP surgeries, walk-in centres, emergency departments and the ambulance service.
In partnership with other organisations, the College manages and supports projects in paediatric medicines.
Access guidance statements on medicines for health professionals, and find out more about Medicines for Children, the parent and carer information resource.
