The faltering growth quality standard covers recognising and managing faltering growth in babies (aged up to 1 year) and preschool children (aged over 1 year). It describes high-quality care in priority areas for improvement.

CGF trustee, Rachel Pidcock, was a lay member on the specialist committee and contributed towards the quality standard, the CGF was also a stakeholder in its development.

The standard aims to improve the identification, management and support related to faltering growth and can be found at the link below.

NICE Faltering Growth Quality Standard

 

NICE quality standards describe high-priority areas for quality improvement in a defined care or service area. Each standard consists of a prioritised set of specific, concise and measurable statements. NICE quality standards draw on existing NICE or NICE-accredited guidance that provides an underpinning, comprehensive set of recommendations, and are designed to support the measurement of improvement.
