TeamPeds Talks: Conversations on Child Health Equity - Access to Primary Care

0.5 NAPNAP Contact Hour. This continuing education activity is offered free to NAPNAP Members and for non- members. 

Nurse-Led School-Based Health Centers 

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.

A “place-based” organizing framework, reflecting key areas of social determinants of health (SDOH), was developed by Healthy People 2020. Each of these determinant areas reflects a number of key issues that make up the underlying factors in the arena of SDOH.

Each conversation episode is hosted by National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Executive Board President Jessica Peck, DNP, APRN, CPNP-PC, CNE, CNL, FAANP.

This conversation episode is related to Health and Health Care, and addresses Access to Primary Care.

Dr. Peck is joined by Anne Derouin, DNP, APRN, CPNP, FAANP. Dr. Derouin is the lead faculty for the PNP-Primary Care major in the MSN program and the Pediatric Behavioral Mental Healthcare specialty program at Duke University. 

Dr. Anne Derouin has worked to provide access to health care via School-Based Health Centers (SBHC), which demonstrate positive effect on health, well-being and academic outcomes of youth. SBHCs provide critical links between educators, families and school resources. Because SBHCs are co-located within schools, they offer the opportunity to assess social determinants of health and Adverse Childhood Events (ACEs) among youth, providing data and solutions that are accessible and applicable.
