Abstract

Pediatric trauma performance improvement programs may share some of the criteria tracked by their counterparts in the adult trauma world. However, some of the criteria must be specific to the unique diagnostic and therapeutic needs of children. Nine criteria are defined in terms of the critical issues, what information is required to evaluate the appropriateness of the care provided in regards to those issues, and acceptable thresholds for review. In addition, practical aspects of multi-disciplinary peer review in the performance improvement process is presented.
