The Family Voices National Center for Family and Professional Partnerships is hosting this webinar presented by Suzanne M. Bronheim, PhD of Georgetown University Center for Child and Human Development. Suzanne will share findings from a 2010 research partnership with three Family-to-Family Health Information Centers (F2F HICs) to better understand how Hispanic/Latino families' and African American families' utilization of F2F HICs might be increased. This research project is based on a social marketing theory that suggests that people try new things if that "innovation" fits with their values and experience, seems to have an advantage over other approaches, is easy to use, can be tried and dropped if they don't like it and if others they know and trust are also aware of it and have used it. The project has used this framework to study how Hispanic/Latino and African American families prefer to receive information and how they view the F2F HICs as a resource. In addition, this project has studied similar issues for the social networks of families to learn how they view and access F2F HICs. Suzanne will be joined by staff of the F2F HICs that partnered in this project to share lessons learned and suggestions of how other F2F HICs can use this framework.
AAP Practice Services Webinar: Mental Health in the Medical Home Setting
December 5, 2012—11 to 12pm (Mountain)
Available for a fee at registration
Many patient-centered medical home (PCMH) demonstration projects have been initiated across the United States. Although a few have included treatment for depressive disorders as a component of a larger intervention (Bitton et al, 2010), most have not explicitly addressed mental health. Consensus has yet to emerge on whether strategies used to deliver mental health treatment in primary care are consistent with the core elements of the PCMH or the extent to which adoption of the PCMH concept will facilitate the delivery of such treatment in primary care. This American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) webinar examines the PCMH concept and successful approaches to delivering mental health treatment in primary care.
Webinar: Newborn Bloodspot Screening
December 7, 2012—1pm (Mountain)
The third in the series of Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) sponsored webinars will share information and educate stakeholders on the national home visiting, newborn bloodspot screening, and newborn hearing screening initiatives. The webinar will summarize what newborn screening involves—the 7 core elements of a newborn screening program, the different ways bloodspot screening identified patients would be the target population for home visiting programs, and ways where hearing screening data could be incorporated.
AMCHP Best Practice Technical Assistance Request
Deadline: December 12, 2012
As part of an overall strategic goal to improve maternal and child health outcomes by sharing effective and promising practices with state and territorial maternal and child health (MCH) programs, the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs (AMCHP) is providing replication stipends ($1,000-$2,000) to foster connections between states interested in replication or adaptation of a current emerging, promising or best practice in Innovation Station. Through this project, applicants can request technical assistance support (ie, travel funds or other seed resources) to learn how to adapt a specific Innovation Station practice (or elements of a practice) to their state or community. Applicants will need to demonstrate readiness to adapt the practice in order to maximize technical assistance resources.
