Evaluating the Receipt and Quality of Anticipatory Guidance Provided to Parents of Young Children


Anticipatory guidance provided during well-child care visits helps promote parents' awareness of their young child's developmental milestones and needs. Such counseling can lead to better health outcomes while increasing parents' satisfaction with their pediatric providers. More information is needed, however, to determine which topics are brought up when pediatricians talk to parents and whether parents view these interactions positively. For this project, investigators will analyze a special supplement to the national Medical Expenditure Panel Survey that focuses on children's preventive care services. They will examine parents' experiences with their child's primary pediatric clinician, their receipt of anticipatory guidance, and the relationship between the two. Dissemination of the findings is expected to draw national attention to variations in the quality of children's preventive services and inform efforts to improve care. http://www.rochester.edu/
