If you were embarking on a long road trip, would you want to use a map or your intuition to guide your path? Your intuition could get you there, but a map can show you the shortest route, saving time and gas. The same is true with determining efficient and effective healthcare practices, where information can guide healthcare professionals, patients and families to the best possible services.

The Canadian Association of Paediatric Health Centres and the paediatric rehabilitation community are looking to better articulate the efficacy and impact of rehabilitation services to paediatric patients with medical complexities. Until recently, data collection was limited. The Paediatric Rehabilitation Reporting System (PRRS) initiative has deeply invested in assessing rehabilitation models of care across multiple settings to determine which data would be most important to collect. In addition, PRRS has engaged families to further define a meaningful dataset which will be well positioned to influence change. A first of its kind!

Join the Canadian Paediatric Decision Support Network and the Canadian Network for Child and Youth Rehabilitation in this timely dialogue on an innovative Pan-Canadian approach to data collection and analysis. A discussion on PRRS’s ability to better understand the paediatric rehabilitation community will occur along with reviewing the available paediatric rehabilitation service metrics from this reporting system.
