Voluntary Pediatric Recognition Program (VPRP)
The goal of this program is to increase the readiness of hospitals to care for pediatric patients. We are preparing to pilot the "Pediatric Ready" Level of the program and are actively looking for hospitals that are interested in participating. If your facility is interested in being an early adopter of the program and would like to participate, please contact the program manager at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. You can also follow the links below to download additional information about the program.
EMS Recognition Program
Similar to the hospital pediatric readiness program the goal of this program is to increase the readiness of EMS agencies to care for pediatric patients. The EMS Recognition Program is currently being revised to reflect current national EMSC performance measures and Prehospital Pediatric Readiness guidelines. For more information, please contact EMSC Program Manager, Sam Vance: email@example.com.
