Train the Trainer
The care of an acutely ill child can be one of the most stressful moments for health care providers. This stress is highlighted in community emergency departments where pediatric patients make up a minority of the total annual census. Additionally, many systems of care are not optimized to care for the sickest of pediatric patients. Our mission is to measure the quality of pediatric acute care in local hospitals. By working together as a team, we can ultimately improve the overall quality of care for all pediatric patients.
Through Train the Trainer, we aim to train academic medical centers in adapting the ImPACTS model and to assist them in developing a mutual relationship with the community hospitals in their region to measure and improve the quality of pediatric acute care.
