All behavior is communication, but with children who have been traumatized, it can be difficult to know what they are saying. Through an innovative project, pediatric practices around the state are learning to decode what these children are saying. The Institute for Health Policy and Practice at UNH with expertise from the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth bring proven strategies and resources in quality improvement science to help healthcare providers take the steps to improve care during routine well-child checks.
We are excited to have Felicity Bernard, the Director of the New Hampshire Pediatric Improvement Partnership (NH PIP), with us today. She’s here to talk about how this project is helping pediatric practices look beyond what a child presents during a visit to understand how they feel and respond to stress.
