Paediatric Improvement Collaborative

  • PIC logo for CPG endorsement

    A Paediatric Improvement Collaborative (PIC) between Clinical Excellence Queensland, the NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation, Safer Care Victoria and RCH was formed in 2018. Support is also being provided by The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation.

    The PIC aims to improve the safety, reliability and effectiveness of care for children in any acute setting by jointly committing funds to further enhance the quality of the Statewide CPG’s, actively promote their use and assess their impact on patient care.

    The PIC is working towards:

    • Improving the CPG user interface (website and app)
    • Transitioning of the CPGs to a standardised format accessible across all three states
    • Reviewing CPGs every two years to ensure they contain current best medical practice

    The CPGs continue to be a well visited resource with 4 million sessions last financial year; resulting in over 5.1 million page views.

    Hear from paediatricians across Australia on why it’s important to use clinical practice guidelines that are specific for children in order to provide them with the best standard of care.
