Implementation of a health surveillance clinic for children with Down syndrome

Abstract

The implementation of the multidisciplinary Down Syndrome Health Surveillance clinic at Children’s Health Ireland at Tallaght, Dublin has shown significant improvements in the adherence to guidelines as well as providing health promotion strategies such as information on immunisations. Our project provides a framework which would be potentially emulated and used in other medical conditions. The reduction in clinic attendances and co-ordination of same-day appointments has improved parental satisfaction as well as the quality of care.
