This webinar highlights a new tool available to hospitals that serve children/adolescents (including freestanding children’s hospitals, children’s hospitals within larger systems also serving adults and community hospitals): a change package addressing caregiver counseling regarding the restriction of access to lethal means for pediatric patients admitted with suicidality.
The webinar features:
- An overview of the Pediatric Quality Measures Program
- How and why this measure was selected for the Pediatric Hospital Care Improvement Project (P-HIP)
- The approach used for testing and refining change strategies to produce the evidence-based practices featured in the change package
- Stories from two hospitals who participated in the 12-month quality improvement collaborative and how they made improvements to their care processes: Colorado Children's and University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital
- Highlights from the change packages and resources available to hospitals
