The Child Ready Program uses a Community Engagement approach to help communities self-assess their level of readiness or preparedness to care for the acutely ill or injured child, from scene to hospital. Our team, along with a community champion, facilitate community self-assessment visits where community stakeholders self-assess their level of preparedness to care for the ill or injured child regardless of where the event occurs (i.e. at home, at school, in the community, in the ambulance or in the local Emergency Department). After the community meeting, we offer the following services: 1. participation in Child Ready Virtual Pediatric Emergency Department Telehealth Network for consultations and clinically co-managing children in their local ED; 2. online education for healthcare providers (over 40 hours of online Pediatric Emergency specific education); and 3. prevention activities such as the home safety app. We are applying these activities to regionalization of Pediatric Emergency Care as well as optimizing medical facility preparedness to care for the child.
