Wisconsin EMSC would like to sincerely thank all emergency departments who participated in the National Pediatric Readiness Project (NPRP) assessment this summer. We know that hospital staff have been under tremendous pressure during the COVID-19 pandemic and you are being pulled in multiple directions. We appreciate the efforts of all assessment participants; without this data collected, pediatric quality improvement and outcomes-based research would be severely hampered.
