Join Ohio AAP’s New Injury Plus SEEK QI Program to More Effectively Screen for Child Abuse and Common Injury Risks

Each day 4 children die from child abuse, neglect and injury. Thousands more suffer injuries, abuse and toxic stress. What if you could incorporate screening and referral for problems like drug abuse, alcoholism, food insecurity, maternal depression, accidental injuries, unsafe sleep, and more in your practice?

The Ohio AAP’s Injury Plus SEEK Program is planning a wave 3 launch of the program in January 2021. Wave 3 will allow providers to complete all activities via distance, and reduces chart reviews through new virtual screening tools. The Injury Plus SEEK program teaches physicians how to implement a hybrid of the Ohio AAP’s Injury Prevention Screening Tool and the nationally recognized SEEK Tool, allowing physicians to more efficiently and effectively screen for child abuse and mental health risks, as well as the most common injury risks for children birth to five years of age. Additional benefits to participating practices include: 

  • Training, tools and talking points to assess and help address risky behaviors and psychosocial problems
  • Maintenance of Certification Part IV and CME
  • Family safety resources for distribution to patients
  • Community resources for family referrals
