Pediatrics introducing new section “Quality Reports” which will feature reports of quality-improvement projects

Published by under General

Opportunities to share results of well-designed quality improvement projects, regardless of their success have been limited. This has been a critical missed opportunity for spreading innovation. Recognizing this need, the Journal of Pediatrics is introducing a new section “Quality Reports” under the direction of assistant editor Alex Kemper, MD; this section will feature reports of the implementation and outcomes of quality improvement projects. It is believed that the publishing of these reports will both increase scholarly productivity around quality improvement for children’s health and improve the rigor brought to the conduct of quality improvement projects.
