TeamPeds Talks is a podcast series from the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) and features NAPNAP experts and stakeholders addressing key issues in pediatric health. The conversations are available wherever you listen to podcasts or on



We are excited to launch of the next edition of the TeamPedsTalks podcast series, FocusED sponsored by the Pediatric Emergency Care Special Interest Group. Pediatric Emergency Care is a specialty that is drawing on an increasing number of Pediatric Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRN) to deliver high quality, efficient, and effective care.  The Pediatric Emergency Care Special Interest Group (PEC SIG) provides its members with a national platform to explore the issues and unique challenges faced by APRNs caring for the unexpected pediatric patient. The PEC SIG has a diverse membership and recognizes that care in the urgent or emergent setting does not happen in isolation.  A commitment to identifying common goals and creating solutions for evolving education, practice, and legislative challenges across the care continuum led to the development of FocusED, a 12-part podcast program that offers a wide range of listeners a unique view into the broad scope of pediatric emergency care. By examining three different emergency care topics from a variety of different vantage points across the care continuum, FocusED highlights the many points of intersection between emergency care and the larger health care system.


Focus on Child and Adolescent Mental Health

We are excited to launch our second TeamPeds Talks podcast series in early 2021, exploring mental health impacts on children and adolescents as well as on pediatric caregivers. We are looking for novel applications, new initiatives, emerging trends and compelling stories demonstrating current trends and issues in child and adolescent mental health. 


Conversations on Child Health Equity

TeamPeds Talks will spotlight Child Health Equity in our first Conversations on Child Health series. This series of recorded conversations will reflect the several key issues that make up the underlying factors in the arena of Social Determinants of Health.
Through this series, we will have important conversations with pediatric health care providers that are developing efforts to positively impact child health inequities.
These conversations will be available as podcasts, and the episodes can be viewed on PedsCESM for CE Contact Hours.
