Upcoming Webinar: How NPRQI Can Help Ensure High Quality Pediatric Emergency Care

Date: March 24, 2022

The National Pediatric Readiness Quality Initiative (NPRQI), a free, open-access quality improvement platform, is the implementation arm of the National Pediatric Readiness Project (NPRP). Over 80% of children (24 million/year) are seen in general emergency departments (EDs) located in rural and community settings. NPRQI was created to support low-resourced EDs to implement quality improvement efforts targeting pediatric emergency care delivery.
