The Pediatric Readiness Program (PRP) is a not-for-profit, collaborative effort to promote enhanced pediatric emergency care through quality improvement work, education and knowledge sharing among emergency departments who care for kids across the state of Oregon and Southwest Washington. The interdisciplinary program team is motivated by a passion for providing high-quality care to sick children where they are cared for and by the spirit of continuous improvement wherever we practice.
