Making the Mission Viable: Coding for the Care Provided to Children Exposed to Violence
October 10, 2012 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
WEBINAR SERIES OVERVIEW
According to the National Survey of Children Exposed to Violence, over 60% of children are exposed to violence. These experiences can impact physical, mental, and behavioral health long into adulthood. The American Academy of Pediatrics policy statement on toxic stress expands upon this, noting the significant impact on the development of the brain when experiences like exposure to violence cause significant toxic stress in a child’s life.
The medical home is a place that can represent safety, access to resources, and continuous care for a child and family who has experienced violence. But medical home teams need to be prepared.
This Webinar series is intended to provide a strong foundation for medical home teams (pediatricians, physicians, nurses, front office staff, etc) to more effectively identify children and adolescents exposed to violence-and get them the appropriate care they need to heal and restore hope for a bright and successful future.
