Using quality and safety (Q&S) principles for the evaluation, performance, and follow-up care of patients is a critical component of pediatric otolaryngology. Despite its importance, the best methods and how to become Q&S change agents are not widely known. In this seminar, we discuss the principles of Q&S as it relates to pediatric otolaryngology and airway management, including the most effective methods of reducing practice variability, in-hospital complications, and unplanned readmissions. We also describe how pediatric otolaryngologists and bronchoesophagologists can act as change agents. Finally, we discuss how COVID-19 has impacted airway practices, emphasizing Q&S principles.
