Quality improvement and patient safety

We support our members and the wider child health workforce to be at the forefront of continuous quality improvement, providing opportunities to develop and share QI work and co-produce solutions with children and young people, and their families.
Our free website presents child health professionals' QI projects and posters in medicines, safety, patient-centred care and systems of care - plus updates and events.
Our Child Protection Portal helps inform clinical practice, child protection procedures and professional and expert opinion in the legal system. The invaluable 'Companion' is available for members and subscribers.

Invited reviews are there when healthcare organisations need independent, objective expert advice and external assurance on their clinical services and quality of care.
Our audits aim to improve care and health outcomes for babies, children and young people, including epilepsy, diabetes and neonatal services, as well as on child protection.
