The frequency with which children are identified as having a sentinel injury has QUADRUPLED since launch of the TRAIN Collaborative.
The Ohio AAP is excited to announce the launch of the TRAIN Collaborative for primary care physicians in Ohio. Beginning in June 2018, practices can participate to learn how to increase the identification of infants with sentinel injuries through TRAIN.
- Nearly 1 in 3 abused children has been seen previously by a medical provider with an injury that was not recognized as abuse.
- These injuries, known as “sentinel injuries”, are often minor – an isolated bruise or a small lesion to the mouth, for example.
- Because they often appear so seemingly minor, however, these sentinel injuries may not be recognized as abuse.
Practices may sign up through June 15 to engage in a 12-month learning collaborative with quarterly data collection and educational calls. The Ohio AAP will provide practice coaching to facilitate improvement and learning in practice driven areas, with flexible participation options.
Practices may enroll below for this wave of the TRAIN Collaborative; participating providers will receive:
- Education on identification and importance of sentinel injuries
- Training and support in implementing evidence-based recommendations for evaluation of infants with injury
- Strategies to work collaboratively with caregivers whose children have injury
- Qualifying physicians can receive 25 Points of ABP MOC Part IV credit and opportunities to earn ABP Part II MOC credit
- Networking opportunities with other healthcare providers interested in injury identification and child abuse prevention
- Guidance and quality improvement coaching from the Ohio AAP
Registration is now open; complete the form below to begin improving the recognition of infants at risk for abuse in your practice.
