The PRQC is a two-year, grassroots initiative, focused on frontline providers in participating emergency departments.  The collaborative will run through December 2019. Sixteen teams consisting of several affiliate hospitals will collaborate to improve their pediatric readiness and overall capacity to provide pediatric emergency care.

Teams consist of a training site (Comprehensive Medical Center or Children’s Hospital) and a group of affiliate sites representing urban, suburban, rural, and frontier emergency departments. The collaborative teams are geographically spread across the United States. Champions from the participating emergency departments will be provided resources, tools, quality improvement education, strategies, and metrics that will assist in improving pediatric readiness in their respective emergency departments. Participating facilities will work on any of four interventions based on gaps identified during the 2013 National Pediatric Readiness Assessment.
