What are the guiding principles for health promotion at the individual and population level within pediatrics? Please think about the following questions:
- Discuss national and international guidelines for well child care.
- Understand the application of guidelines in screening and health coaching for promotion of wellness from the neonate to the young adult.
- Discuss newborn screening and the integration of Bright Futures into practice.
Required reading: The Bright Futures Tools and Resource Kit are a great place to start with resources for providers and also patient forms and education.
Pediatrics: Pick a Healthy People 2020 goal that pertains to pediatrics.
Neonatal: Access the USPSTF site and choose a specific topic (i.e. hyperbilirubinemia) that is specific to the neonatal population up to 2 years of age.
Briefly summarize your topic of choice, and then provide further insight and/or recommendations based on current evidence. May be in paragraph or bullet format.
