Paediatric Hospital Care Priority Setting Partnership

In collaboration with the James Lind Alliance (JLA), PIRN has completed the Paediatric Hospital Care Priority Setting Partnership (PSP) to identify the Top 10 patient-oriented priorities in paediatric hospital care in Canada.

To identify these priorities, we asked, “What are the most important, unanswered research questions in paediatric hospital medicine from the perspectives of young people, parents/caregivers, and healthcare professionals?” 

Bringing together partners from across Canada including 22 paediatricians, 4 nurses, 4 patient partners, and 13 stakeholder organizations, the partnership has identified the Top 10 most important, unanswered research questions about the care of hospitalized children in general paediatric inpatient units (GPIUs). 

"The JLA PSP was by far the most engaging, collaborative, and respectful PSP I have been a part of. Each stakeholder’s voice and opinions were treated equally and respectfully regardless of title, minimizing the immediate power differential that can often occur in these settings."
