Training Office Staff to Improve Preventive and Developmental Services in Pediatric Practices


Improving the quality of preventive health care and developmental services for children will require substantial changes in how this care is provided, from revamped appointment systems to new screening procedures. To be successful, such an effort will require the involvement of the entire staff of pediatric practices, not only physicians. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has proposed a practice-based quality improvement program that will be developed and evaluated through a collaboration of teams of administrative and clinical staff from 12 practices within a single region. The program will use a modular curriculum and resource toolkit that is based on work completed by previous Fund grantees (e.g., the National Initiative for Children's Healthcare Quality). The final program, which will become part of the AAP's ongoing educational activities, will be widely disseminated through the federally funded, multidisciplinary Bright Futures initiative to promote a system of high-quality preventive care for children.
