Paediatric Hospital Care (Canada)
A large number of children are admitted to hospital with common ailments, such as asthma, chest infections and the stomach flu. Despite being so common, there are few research studies that focus on children who are admitted to hospital with these general conditions, and because of this lack of research, the type of care children receive in hospital varies. To try and address this gap, a Canada wide network (The Pediatric Inpatient Research Network) of health care professionals who are interested in improving the care of children in hospital was set up.
The Pediatric Inpatient Research Network (PIRN) worked with the James Lind Alliance on the Paediatric Hospital Care Priority Setting Partnership to identify the most important unanswered research questions about the care of children in hospital that are important to patients, caregivers, and health care professionals.
The Paediatric Hospital Care (Canada) Top 10 was published in November 2021.
