This Month's QI Story - The Chameleon Project
This resource describes a QI project to improve end of life care for infants, children and young people across the East Midlands.

Data shows the prevalence of children with life limiting and threatening conditions increased nationally by 50% between 2001 and 2011, from 25 per 10,000 to 32 per 10,000 population. The combination of this, along with data from paediatric specialities including PICU and oncology, led to the successful application of a grant from NHS England to improve regional care through QI.
