Regardless of the level of participation in the Quality Improvement and Education opportunities, all sites will have access to a repository of shared pediatric resources such as pediatric policies (as recommended by the AAP, ACEP, ENA joint policy statement "Pediatric Readiness in the Emergency Department"), essential equipment lists, and clinical pathways for common or critical pediatric conditions.
These clinical pathways are based upon publicly available medical evidence and/or a consensus of medical practitioners supporting the Pediatric Readiness Program (PRP) and are current at the time of publication. The clinical pathways are for informational purposes only. They are intended to assist practitioners, but may need to be adapted by practitioners for each specific patient based on the practitioner’s professional judgment, consideration of any unique circumstances, needs of each patient and their family, and/or availability of various resources at the health care institution where the patient is located.
Accordingly, these clinical pathways are not intended to constitute medical advice or treatment, are not a substitute for professional clinical judgment, and do not create a provider-patient relationship between the medical practitioners supporting the PRP and individual patients provided care by the practitioner. THE CLINICAL PATHWAYS ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND WITHOUT ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTIES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. The PRP does not represent or warrant that the clinical pathways are in every respect accurate or complete, or that one or more of them apply to a particular patient or medical condition. The PRP is not responsible for any errors or omissions in the clinical pathways, or for any outcomes a patient might experience where a practitioner consulted one or more such clinical pathways in connection with providing care for that patient.
