Value of including the Children Experience for improving their rightS during hospitalization

The project aims to strength the children involvement in the evaluation and improvement of care quality in children’s hospitals, taking into account their opinions in modulating child-friendly care for inpatient services.

Collect children’s experiences

Although children are one of the most fragile segments of the population, and the experience with the hospital is per se a delicate moment, currently pediatric patients do not used to have the chance to express their voice about the hospital care received.


Patient-Reported Experience Measures

Design, implementation, and evaluation of a children Patient-Reported Experience Measures (PREMs) Observatory on hospitalization and identification of a common PREMs questionnaire for pediatric patients, by directly involving children and parents’ representatives, and practitioners.

Needs & Target

Since hospitalization represents a very delicate moment, it is especially important to focus on health-related vulnerable children and adolescents. The target group of this project is represented by all pediatric patients (0-17 years old) who receive hospital care in the 4 hospitals involved in the project.
