The AAP has developed training resources to help pediatricians other physicians review telehealth related topics with staff and other medical home team members. These trainings are intended to be facilitated by members of the practice team to encourage discussion in short 15-20 minute presentations. Each training consists of presenter slides, facilitator speakers notes and a case study. These materials can be presented anywhere from staff meetings to professional development opportunities.

The format for the following trainings was inspired by the Spark trainings developed by the Adolescent Health Initiative at the University of Michigan. Their trainings can be found here.
