          The National Resource Center for Patient/Family-Centered Medical Home released a supplemental social determinants of health flyer for the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Food Research & Action Center recently updated screening toolkit, Screen & Intervene: A Toolkit for Pediatricians to Address Food Insecurity.

        • ​​​​NEW RESOURCE! HealthyChildren.org article
          The National Resource Center for Patient/Family-Centered Medical Home (NRC-PFCMH) partnered with Dr Joan Jeung, Executive Committee member of the American Academy of Pediatrics' (AAP) Section on Minority Health Equity and Inclusion (MHEI) and NRC-PFCMH Advisory Committee member, to write an article addressing social determinants of health (SDoH) screening for families with children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN). The article focuses on the role of the pediatrician in supporting families with non-medical concerns, such as meeting basic needs, dealing with stress and emotional concerns, in addition to highlighting support services available for families.​

Additional Social Determinants of Health Resources
        • Action Learning Collaborative (ALC)
          Developed by the National Resource Center for Patient/Family-Centered Medical Home, the Action Learning Collaborative (ALC) was an 8-month quality improvement project, highlighting collaborations between state agencies and clinical practices. The goal of the ALC was for teams to work collaboratively to advance patient/family-centered medical home by strengthening state partnerships; increasing screenings for social determinants of health (SDoH); increasing referrals and linkages to local and community resources after positive screenings for SDoH are identified; identifying protective factors for social/emotional health in partnership with families; and increasing access to a patient/family-centered medical home. Tools and resources developed for the ALC are available on the NRC-PFCMH website
        • ​Making Connections: The Critical Role of Family-Centered Care in Addressing Social Determinants of Health for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN)
          The National Resource Center for Patient/Family-Centered Medical Home (NRC-PFCMH), in partnership with Bright Futures National Center and the Screening Technical Assistance and Resource (STAR) Center, implemented a 2-part educational webinar series, Making Connections: The Critical Role of Family-Centered Care in Addressing Social Determinants of Health for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN). The goal of the series was to provide state Title V Maternal and Child Health (MCH) / CYSHCN programs, pediatricians, families, and others with information about the impact of social determinants of health on CYSHCN and their families, including implementation strategies for state programs. The series discussed the role of these groups and state systems in addressing SDOH for CYSHCN by using components of the medical home model. View more information about the series here.
