The Ohio AAP is launching new education and quality improvement opportunities that will empower pediatricians to address important aspects of maternal health in pediatric well child visits. These activities will prepare practices to incorporate four behavioral risks affecting future birth outcomes and family health. This model is based on the March of Dimes’ successful Implicit Toolkit.

Practices in Ohio can engage in a new quality improvement (QI) project launching in February 2021. The Healthy Mom, Healthy Family project will provide practices with training to more fully screen mothers for health risks at infant well-child visits, and provide resources for those with identified needs.

    • Easy screening tool and no chart review data collection
