This white paper comes from a roundtable where over 100 clinicians, managers, and consumers gathered to share their experiences of healthcare. They formed a series of co-designed recommendations to improve emergency care for children.
The round table discussion identified three main issues that need to be addressed:
- timely recognition and action when children are acutely unwell or deteriorating
- ensuring that parents concerns are heard and acted on
- putting in place a system for the delivery of safe care to children 24/7.
