PediaLink course on trauma-informed care

A new six-unit, video-based course, Trauma-Informed Care and Resilience Promotion, is available at no cost for members through PediaLink.

The course covers the most common symptoms of trauma; identifies strategies caregivers and physicians can use to promote resilience skills and recognize the developmental health impacts of trauma; provides guidance on effective screening and surveillance tools; offers techniques for managing trauma symptoms; and suggests when and how to refer or prescribe medication.

Continuing medical education and Maintenance of Certification credit is available.

To register for the course, visit https://bit.ly/3noFYDI. For more information on implementing trauma-informed care in pediatric health care settings, visit www.aap.org/tic.

Modules for pediatrician advocates

The AAP Section on Critical Care advocacy subcommittee has created three advocacy modules that can be used by all pediatrician advocates. The modules include:

  • Finding your voice (https://bit.ly/40usXad): This module reinforces the credibility of a pediatrician or pediatric subspecialist as an advocate and explains how advocates can work through and partner with AAP advocacy channels.
  • Legislative advocacy (https://bit.ly/3M9ojdK): In this module, advocates learn the legislative process and opportunities to intervene within the process, legislative advocacy methods, strategies for communicating with legislators and the advocate’s role in encouraging voter registration.
  • Advocacy as an academic product (https://bit.ly/40vsBQZ): This topic is of particular interest to members whose careers and interests are immersed in advocacy. The module reviews the concept of the advocacy portfolio and career and educational options for advocates.

The modules are meant for group viewing potentially as part of an advocacy curriculum or track for trainees.

Find additional guidance in the AAP advocacy guide, https://www.aap.org/advocacyguide (login required).

Resources on infant nutrition

AAP resources can help pediatricians impact nutritional choices during the first 12 months of life, providing a supportive framework for an infant’s present and future health.

Resources include a digital tool to diagnose vitamin and nutritional deficiencies, nutrition assessment tools and information on nutrition-related illnesses.

The development of this information was made possible with support from Abbott Nutrition.
