Programme - PIPSQC Minicourse (M23) - IHI 25th Annual National Forum

PIPSQC is pleased to present the Programme for the upcoming PIPSQC Minicourse (M23), "Protecting Children from Harm." The Minicourse is set to take place December 9th at the IHI 25th Annual National Forum (December 8-11, 2013 - Orlando, FL).

Pediatric patient safety, a developing field in health care, presents different challenges from those found in adult-focused settings. Fortunately, there is a growing knowledge base on which to base interventions. Understanding the barriers to the provision of safe care for children is key. In this session, leaders from the Paediatric International Patient Safety and Quality Community (PIPSQC) will present the latest theories on safety in child services, from the community to the hospital, focusing on child- and family-centered care.


·         Identify the risks facing children in health care

·         Develop a framework for pediatric patient safety and access tools that can be used in safety programs

·         Utilize novel ways to protect children, led by parents and caregivers
