The endoscopy Global Rating Scale (GRS) is a web-based self-assessment quality improvement (QI) tool that provides a framework for service improvement. Widespread use of the GRS in adult endoscopy services in the United Kingdom (UK) has led to a demonstrable improvement in quality. The adult GRS is not directly applicable to paediatric endoscopy services. The objective of this study is to develop and pilot a paediatric endoscopy Global Rating Scale (P-GRS) as a QI tool.

A scale comprising 18 symptom constructs chosen to represent relatively independent dimensions of manifest psychopathology. The initial intended use was to provide more efficient assessment of treatment response in clinical psychopharmacology research; however, the scale was readily adapted to other uses.

Procedures of applying ENDOSCOPES for disease diagnosis and treatment. Endoscopy involves passing an optical instrument along either natural body pathways such as the digestive tract, or through keyhole incisions to examine the interior parts of the body. With advances in imaging, endoscope, and miniaturization of endosurgical equipment, surgery can be performed during endoscopy.
