PHO Rounds: Visiting Speaker - The 18-Month Enhanced Well-Baby Visit Assessment: Partnerships with public health 

April 17, 2014 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. 

The 18-month enhanced well-baby visit is one of the last regularly scheduled primary care visits coupled to immunization and potentially the last time children are seen before school entry. These visits are opportunities for monitoring growth and development, early identification of risk, and referral to early intervention and treatment. Of equal importance is the opportunity to support parents through anticipatory guidance and to enhance parenting skills that have been shown to have an impact on optimizing child outcomes. We will describe a partnership in continuous quality improvement between public health and primary care in Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox & Addington (KFL&A) to increase awareness and implementation of this important enhanced visit.
