NEWS FROM THE WORLD-Quality improvement in neurology: Child neurology quality measure set Executive summary

Childhood neurologic disorders, as a group, include relatively common conditions such as migraine (prevalence between 3% and 10.6% in children 3–15 years of age), transient tic disorders (TDs) (3%),3 and specifically Tourette syndrome (TS) (0.8%), and rarer disorders such as infantile spasms that may occur in only about 1,200 infants each year in the United States. These disorders account for a disproportionately higher number of emergency department visits, intensive care admissions, deaths, and higher costs when compared to other childhood illness.4 Generally, delivery of quality care should improve outcomes and result in decreased unnecessary utilization of health services.
