Welcome to the National Pediatric Readiness Project!

Thank You for Visiting the PedsReady Website!

We value quality improvement (QI) efforts made on behalf of pediatric readiness in the Emergency Department (ED). If you would like to take the National Pediatric Readiness Project (NPRP) assessment for your own records and QI purposes, click on the “Let’s Get Started” button on the right-hand side of this page.


After completing the assessment, you will receive an email summary report with your overall pediatric readiness score and your answers to scored questions. You may return to the site and repeat this process as often as you wish to evaluate your pediatric readiness and receive an updated score.

Please explore the links below to access tools and resources to improve your ED's level of pediatric readiness.

 


You may want to download and print a copy of the NPRP assessment* and review it with your ED Nurse Manager and/or Medical Director to become familiar with the questions before completing it online. Please note the following about this version of the assessment:

  • This quality improvement assessment is for your own records and purposes
  • It parallels the questions from the 2021 NPRP assessment
  • You will receive an email summary report with your overall pediatric readiness score and your answers to scored questions
  • The summary report IS NOT a gap report, so you will not see comparison scores to previous assessments
  • You may repeat this process as many times as you like

For more information, contact your State EMS for Children Program Manager.


The following joint policy statement was released in 2018:

Pediatric Readiness in the Emergency Department

Reviewing these guidelines will help to inform your efforts to improve pediatric readiness in your ED.

*The National Pediatric Readiness (NPRP) Assessment is based on the 2018 Policy Statement: Pediatric Readiness in the Emergency Department and was developed by NPRP collaborative partners. It is intended to be used to evaluate overall pediatric readiness in Emergency Departments. Users agree they will not adapt, alter, amend, abridge, modify, condense, make derivative works, or translate the assessment. The project is funded in part by HRSA’s EMSC Data Center grant award UJ5MC30824. For more information, write to PedsReady@hsc.utah.edu.
