This year Docs for Tots, in partnership with the Center for Youth Wellness, was able to bring together four pediatric practices across Long Island into a learning collaborative aiming to implement ACEs screening into practice. We are excited to present our accomplishments and plans for next year.
Our 2018 accomplishments included:
Partnership with the Center for Youth Wellness (CYW), the national experts in early childhood adversity
Six learning collaborative calls/meetings in conjunction with CYW to set up practices to learn about and launch ACEs screening in 2019
Four unique sites ready to screen, including private practice, physician network, FQHC, and academic institution
Two screenings of Resilience film with panel of early childhood experts in both Nassau and Suffolk Counties, with total audience of 150 people
Workshop about ACEs screening at Suffolk Health Disparities Conference reaching 100 people
In 2019, we plan to:
Fully integrate education and screening within the four practices in the Learning Collaborative
Share our knowledge to expand education about ACEs screening across Long Island
Direct educational outreach to families to spread knowledge and awareness of ACEs and how to address them
Spread professional awareness about ACEs and how to help families
