Addressing Social Health and Early Childhood Wellness (ASHEW) Quality Improvement Learning Collaborative

The Addressing Social Health and Early Childhood Wellness (ASHEW) initiative seeks to improve the health, wellness, and development of children through practice and system-based interventions. Practices will increase rates of early childhood screening, counseling, referral, and follow-up for developmental milestones, maternal depression, social determinants of health and social-emotional development.

The Georgia Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics is recruiting practices to join an 11-month quality improvement collaborative. Participating practices will test and refine quality improvement changes using family-centered, strength-based approaches to screening, referral, and follow-up for maternal depression, social determinants of health, and social- emotional developme.

National AAP and the Chapter will provide support to practices through peer-to-peer learning, education, and technical assistance to implement the project’s change package which is eligible for 25 points of ABP MOC Part 4, 20 points of ABP MOC Part 2, and AMA PI CME (pending approval).
