The Paediatric Inpatient Research Network (PIRN) has worked with the James Lind Alliance to execute the Paediatric Hospital Care Priority Setting Partnership.

By bringing together patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals, this collaborative study has identified the Top 10 most important, unanswered patient-oriented research priorities about paediatric hospital care:

  1. What best practices and/or care models exist for inpatient care for children and youth with medical complexity on the general paediatric inpatient unit? 
     

  2. What methods of communication are most effective between patients, caregivers and health care providers on a general paediatric inpatient unit? 

  3. What are best practices and support strategies for Indigenous parents, families and children and youth on the general paediatric inpatient unit? 
     

  4. How can we ensure that healthcare delivery in hospital meets the needs of children and youth with developmental disabilities on the general paediatric inpatient unit? 
     

  5. What are effective support strategies for parents, families and children and youth hospitalized on the general paediatric inpatient unit? (e.g. support groups, private rooms/sleeping arrangements, breastfeeding support, physical activity, making the ward more adolescent-friendly, screen time)
     

  6. What mental health supports can be provided to parents, families and children and youth while hospitalized on the general paediatric inpatient unit?
     

  7. What are effective ways to incorporate shared decision-making with parents and children/youth hospitalized on the general paediatric inpatient unit? ("Effectiveness” defined as length of stay, caregiver confidence)
     

  8. What are effective strategies to mitigate the impacts of prolonged inpatient hospitalizations on the general paediatric inpatient unit? (e.g. addressing unmet needs, prolonged separation from family) 
     

  9. What are effective alternatives to shorten length of stay for hospitalized children and youth on the general paediatric inpatient unit? (e.g. hospitalization at home, early discharge with close and regular follow-up)
     

  10. What are the most effective communication methods (e.g. handover, rounds, etc.) between healthcare providers on a general paediatric inpatient unit?
