The CareTrack Kids project is supported by collaborative partners and will investigate the appropriateness and safety of healthcare received by children. This project will, for the first time examine the appropriateness of the care provided in Australia for 16 common conditions, barriers that prevent appropriate delivery and measure the frequency and nature of adverse events involving children in our healthcare system, offering a unique opportunity to address safety deficiencies. The ultimate aim is efficient, safe and effective delivery of healthcare to children in Australia.
A key initiative of CareTrack Kids is the Asthma apps for children study.
This information will be useful for designing and implementing future self-management strategies and apps for young children with asthma.
We are looking for volunteers to share their thoughts about apps for children with asthma.
