Anticipatory guidance is very important, but as national surveys (MA Schuster 2000, N Halfon 2002) have shown, pediatricians do not have time to review all recommended topics with parents. Even when the highlights are hit, parents may not remember. We propose to plan bimonthly classes to educate parents in the community to fill the gaps in anticipatory guidance. We plan to survey the parents on the six anticipatory guidance topics: car safety, firearm safety, smoking, healthy weight, physical activity, and nutrition. We will use the results to reveal which topics the parents are most uninformed about so that we can plan classes around them. In addition, we will survey the parents on their learning styles to determine the most effective way to conduct the classes. We will also plan a system to notify the children's medical homes if the classes reveal any potential issues that need to be addressed with their pediatrician. We will also connect the children to a medical home if they do not already have one. The classes will be advertised at local homeless shelters where children are at risk for poorer health outcomes and poor access to medical care.
