Injury Prevention Plus Safe Environment for Every Kid (SEEK) QI Program
Research has found that social determinants of health (SDH) in childhood can lead to lifelong health problems. These include living conditions, poverty level and mental health of caregivers. These experiences make-up 20% of children’s overall health and can have an impact on children reaching their full potential.
By finding and discussing some of these risks with families, providers are able to give needed resources that help ensure children are safe and able to build resiliency through positive relationships with caregivers.
