Consensus standards for the care of children and adolescents in Australian health services

These are the first national standards to specifically consider the health care needs of children and adolescents and to address the co-location of children and adolescents with adult patients in health care settings.

The Standards were collaboratively developed under the auspices of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) and are endorsed by the Association for the Wellbeing of Children in Healthcare, Children's Hospitals Australasia and the Australian College of Children and Young People's Nurses.

Associated RACP policies on topics such as breastfeeding, circumcision. hyperactivity, vitamin K and several others are also available.
