We would like to invite you to be part of the Meds IQ Champions’ Network, to help us ensure that medicines safety is at the centre of paediatric service improvement delivery regionally and nationally.
The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) has been commissioned by the Department of Health to develop a Quality Improvement network to improve paediatric medicines safety. Meds IQ aims to support scaling up of innovation and sharing quality improvement practice to reduce the risk of harm from paediatric medication error. As part of the project, we developed a Meds IQ website – an online library collating examples of QI projects and tools, supporting selected areas of medicines safety. It is our vision that, Meds IQ will bring together professionals to support their improvement and organisations to ensure that medicines safety remains at the heart of paediatric research and practice.
As part of the project, we are developing a network of Meds IQ Champions, who will:
- promote the use of Meds IQ in their Trust and professional groups
- share local and regional medication safety resources and contribute content to the site, where appropriate
The Champions will be a link between the College, the regional and local groups and networks and clinical teams, ensuring a two-way flow of information – disseminating key Meds IQ activities and resources as well as escalating regional updates and practice to the Meds IQ team and key stakeholders.

If you would be happy to join the Champions’ Network, we would invite you to attend our launch day on September 30th, 12 – 4.30pm in London, where you will receive an in-depth introduction to the Meds IQ project, the Champions’ Network and the information and materials you need as a Champion.
We would kindly ask you to let us know if you will be attending the event by e-mailing Josie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hearing from you.
