Quality Improvement Resources and Tools Quality Improvement Resources and Tools The American Academy of Pediatrics seeks to support pediatricians and their care teams through quality improvement in support of the mission that "every child gets the right care every time."The following resources are a collection of quality improvement and implementation tools, organized by topic area, generated by various member groups throughout the AAP. If you have any questions related to any of the content seen below, please contact us. Featured: Diagnostic Errors in the Primary Care Setting Despite being identified in 1999 in ‘To Err is Human’ as a central facet of patient safety,1 diagnostic errors (missed, delayed or incorrect diagnoses) remain understudied,2 cause appreciable patient harm,3 and their reduction lags behind advances in other patient safety areas. The Reducing Diagnostic Errors in Primary Care Pediatrics (RedDE!) project, a quality improvement collaborative of the AAP Quality Improvement Innovation Network (QuIIN), aimed to reduce pediatric diagnostic errors by tracking diagnostic errors rates and reliably performing best practices for diagnosing adolescent depression, pediatric elevated blood pressure and actionable laboratory results. Results from this quality improvement collaborative indicated that improvements in diagnostic error rates can be achieved by utilizing a wide range of tools and resources to implement best practices. The results are now published in the Pediatric Quality & Safety journal, and can be accessed here: Rinke ML, Bundy DG, Stein REK, O’Donnell HC, Moonseong H, Sangvai S, Lilienfeld H and Hardeep S.
