New AHRQ CAHPS Child Hospital Survey Available

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has released a child version of the CAHPS Hospital Survey (Child HCAHPS). This new survey is designed to assess the experiences of pediatric patients and their parents or guardians with inpatient care. Developed by the Center of Excellence for Pediatric Quality Measurement at Boston Children’s Hospital in partnership with AHRQ’s CAHPS Consortium, Child HCAHPS covers most of the topics addressed by the Adult version of the Hospital Survey as well as topics that are particularly relevant to pediatric care.
