Principles of Pediatric Patient Safety: Reducing Harm Due to Medical Care

PIPSQC is pleased to share the recent publication in Pediatrics, entitled "Principles of Pediatric Patient Safety: Reducing Harm Due to Medical Care." This updated policy statement from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) reviews the epidemiology of medical errors in children, examines unique issues in safety for pediatric patients, and discusses specific approaches to improving safety in pediatrics. The full publication is available online at: https://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/143/2/e20183649 ABSTRACT: Pediatricians render care in an increasingly complex environment, which results in multiple opportunities to cause unintended harm.

Identifying Pediatric Patients at High Risk for Adverse Events in the Hospital

PIPSQC is pleased to share the new publication in Hospital Pediatrics, entitled "Racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic disparities in patient safety events for hospitalized children." In this study, investigators used a pediatric global trigger tool to identify disparities in safety events for a large, random sample of pediatric patients across 16 hospitals. Latino children experienced nearly twice the rate of adverse events when compared with white children. Publicly insured children also had a higher adverse event rate. [...]

Engaging Parents to Help Reduce Medical Errors in the Hospital

PIPSQC is pleased to share the new publication in The BMJ, entitled "Patient safety after implementation of a coproduced family centered communication programme: multicenter before and after intervention study." Results from this PCORI-funded study on improving communication between parents of hospitalized children and clinicians provide insights that could significantly reduce medical errors harmful to patients. [...]
