Pediatric Parents’ Consultation Network
That every child receives the highest standard of care, whether they seek treatment in a pediatric or general emergency department.
The Pediatric Parents’ Consultation Network (P-PCN) is a diverse group of parents, legal guardians, and grandparents across Canada seeking to contribute to child health research. Members form a virtual network and provide online feedback about research aimed at improving child health outcomes.
The ECHO and ARCHE research programs are part of a movement in health care towards more patient-centered or family-centered care, wherein patients and their families actively engage in health care decision-making in partnership with the clinical team. Through the Pediatric Parents’ Consultation Network (P-PCN), we aim to engage parents and families who reflect Canada’s diversity in developing processes and resources to improve child health outcomes.
The ECHO research program is focused on improving health outcomes for children with acute health conditions through the application of the best available evidence — a process known as knowledge translation (KT).
