Continuing Medical Education Webcasts to Promote Better Developmental Services for Young Children

×

Checking for developmental problems in young children through use of standardized screening instruments is an integral part of comprehensive and efficient preventive care. But using these instruments, and acting on the information they provide, is a new skill for many clinicians. An effective way to reach large numbers of clinicians at minimal cost is through webcasts. This project will produce two new webcasts, one on behavioral screening and another on screening for maternal depression, that will be available to child health care providers at no cost. Viewers will also be eligible to receive continuing education credit. If past experience is any guide, substantial numbers of clinicians watching the webcasts are likely to introduce the depicted screening procedures into their practices.
