The Center for Pediatric Clinical Effectiveness (CPCE) is a Center of Emphasis in the Research Institute at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. The center promotes research on how to best manage pediatric illnesses, disseminates knowledge gained from this research, and partners with other groups at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to implement best practices to improve the quality of care delivered to children in the Children's Hospital healthcare network.
CPCE's mission is to discover and spread knowledge about best practices in pediatric disease by facilitating, organizing and centralizing the performance of clinical effectiveness research, the mentoring of fellows and faculty in clinical effectiveness research, and the dissemination and implementation of research findings.
