The AAP Subcommittee on Urgent Care within the Section of Emergency Medicine had its annual meeting at the recent AAP NCE in Orlando on November 3, 2018.
SPUC member Jay Santos from Colorado Children's was installed as the Subcommittee Chair going forward and led the meeting. He gave an update on the state of the subcommittee and then allowed time for each of the workgroups to report on progress of projects--Education, Standards, Research/QI, Advocacy/Communications.
Each workgroup met during within the meeting to plan for the upcoming year's work and focus efforts on a few goals for the next year. The Subcommittee on Urgent Care is interested in elevating the profile of pediatric urgent care within the AAP and advocating for high quality care for children in an urgent care environment.
