Rethinking Well-Child Visits
Seminar, AAP 2007 National Conference and Exhibition (NCE), San Francisco, CA
Participants were presented with the results of an important national study to include: reporting on in-depth interview with primary care pediatric clinicians, experts in child development, and parents, regarding areas of need and potential for strengthening attention to the developmental needs of children and families within the well-child context, and study-based recommendations for change in the timing and priorities within well-child care. Participants were invited to present their own reactions to the study results, and their experiences and ideas for rethinking well-child care. Implications of a different model of well-child care on pediatric training, research, and healthcare delivery were discussed.

Rethinking Well-Child Care
PAS/APPD 2008 Topic Symposium, May 5, 2008
Participants were presented with the results of an important national study which was developed from the growing debate over the call for “rethinking” how well child care (WCC) is conceptualized and provided. With Commonwealth Fund support, the study of clinician and parent opinion regarding the most important priorities for WCC was conducted. The study design relied on qualitative methods – in-depth interviews and focus groups, as well as discussions with pediatric leadership groups and child development experts. Over 300 primary care pediatricians and other health professionals and 130 parents from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds contributed to this national dialog - to help us learn how WCC can more effectively support the developmental needs of children and their families. Panelist and audience responses presented their own reactions to the study results and their experiences and ideas for rethinking well-child care. Implications of a different model of well-child care on pediatric training, research, and healthcare delivery were discussed.
