16 Recognizing & Responding to Children at Risk for Primary Care
This was our first program, created in 1999, and it utilizes the EPIC model - Educating Physicians in their Community. EPIC focuses on peer to peer education that takes place at the pediatric or family medicine location and includes the entire office staff. This program for primary care is designed to encourage change in the day to day practice procedures. Conducted by a presentation team of a physician and local Children and Youth worker, the two hour PowerPoint presentation is approved under Act 31 and eligible participants can receive continuing medical education credit. As an approved training for license renewal under the Department of State, practices are encouraged to schedule this during a once-every-two-years extended office lunch break. As an incentive to have all office personnel participate, reimbursement of low cost meal expenses is offered. Each practice site receives a Child Abuse Office Kit which includes contact information for Children & Youth as well as Child Advocacy Centers, prevention materials, tip sheets and more.
