For the first time, the RCPCH have developed an audit toolkit to support services to monitor how they are meeting our Facing the Future: Standards for children and young people in emergency care settings. The toolkit was piloted in summer 2018 and a final version issued in December.
It is recommended that the audit is completed by the multi-disciplinary emergency care team as a tool for quality improvement. Data collected via the audit will be used to better understand current emergency care provision as well as enabling the RCPCH to benchmark how services are meeting the standards and will be used to coordinate peer learning and improvement.
The standards, audit toolkit and supporting guidance are available here. The Health Policy team are available during office hours to support services to submit data, please get in touch: email@example.com
