CARE (Current Anticipatory guidance Recommendations and Education) is a project of ACEP supported anticipatory guidelines for physicians to give patients to allow for better home care. These guidelines go beyond typical discharge paperwork to supply family with ways to care for their children at home and information that is provided in written form for easy reference.
