New publication on improving paediatric quality of care

01.02.19

The World Health Organization just released Improving the quality of paediatric care: an operational guide for facility-based audit and review of paediatric mortality. It provides guidance for establishing and conducting paediatric death audit and review as part of the overall quality of care improvement at the health facility. Death review or mortality audit is a means of documenting the causes of a death and the factors that contributed to it, identifying factors that could be modified and actions that could prevent future deaths, putting the actions into place and reviewing the outcomes. It helps health workers in identifying patterns of morbidity, mortality, modifiable factors and interventions to improve the quality of care and outcomes in health facilities.
