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.
The College works closely with paediatric sub-specialty groups and engage directly with paediatricians, clinical managers and networks, as well as children, young people and their families to help drive improvements.

Patient Reported Experience Measure (PREM)
PREMs measure the 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.
