What's New for EDOPC?
New Links & Resources Added on Bright Futures, Trauma
EDOPC has added a number of new educational links and resources on Bright Futures, as well as on trauma.
Bright Futures resources include links to many of the National Bright Futures materials such as the 3rd Edition of the Guidelines for Health Supervision of Infants, Children, and Adolescents, the Bright Futures Tool and Resource Kit, and the periodicity schedule recommended by Bright Futures.
As Illinois establishes more materials and resources to assist Illinois providers in implementing Bright Futures, these will be added as well.
Links and resources pertaining to trauma include links to the AAP Section on Child Abuse and Neglect
, an AAP policy statement and technical report on toxic stress,
and educational opportunities including live and archived webinars to help medical home teams increase their knowledge related to exposure to violence and its potentially lifelong impact on children and youth.
Visit the Links & Resources page to find the full listing of new resources, as well as links to screening tools, developmental resources, perinatal maternal depression resources, and more.
EDOPC Looks Towards Website Enhancements for Technical Assistance and Practice Support in 2013
In particular, EDOPC is considering incorporating new website features in order to provide web-based technical assistance and practice support. This support could take many forms, including a “Frequently Asked Questions” document, a blog, or a question submission form to allow providers to ask practice management or support questions. These new types of features will be considered over the course of 2013.
For questions or comments, please contact Rachel Sacks, MPH, Manager, Early Childhood Development at the Illinois Chapter American Academy of Pediatrics by phone at 312/733-1026 ext. 218 or via email at email@example.com.
