The programme will use both data linkage and case note review to build on the work of previous child health confidential enquiries which have highlighted a number of issues, in particular, that children with chronic conditions, principally neurological, comprise the majority of deaths in children over one year.
The Child Health Clinical Outcome Review Programme will examine two topics:
It will focus on three key areas within both topics: the interface between different care settings, for example, primary and secondary care and health and social care; the quality of care provision; and transition between children and adult services across in children with serious illness as well as those that have died.
