Supporting Providers of Color in the Pediatric Workforce: Practices to Diversify the Workforce and Improve Retention
Thursday, January 19, 2023
12:00 pm – 1:30 pm ET
REGISTER

The Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) is offering this free webinar on Supporting Providers of Color in the Pediatric Workforce. This webinar is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

When health care professionals reflect the communities they serve, it leads to greater health equity, enhanced patient care, and improved health outcomes. The current pediatric workforce, however, lacks racial and ethnic diversity. The field is also experiencing staff shortages as well as geographic maldistribution in inner city and rural communities, which are projected to worsen in the years to come. These workforce shortages have negative impacts on providers in the workforce and on our youngest patients across the nation, especially children of color.

This webinar will explore innovations in recruitment, training, and retention that can lead to a more representative and supported pediatric workforce. It will also discuss anti-racist training opportunities for pediatric staff and residents to better serve children most impacted by structural racism. The webinar includes speakers from pediatric sites engaged in Accelerating Child Health Transformation, a national initiative led by the Center for Health Care Strategies with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Health care providers, researchers, and organizations, patients and patient advocates, and other interested stakeholders are invited to join this 90-minute event.

FEATURED SPEAKERS:

  • Ben Danielson, MD, Clinical Professor, Department of Pediatrics, University of Washington School of Medicine and Pediatrician, University of Washington Medicine
  • Margaret Tomcho, MD, Medical Director, Denver Health’s Westside Family Health Center and Pre-Health Pipeline Programs; Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine
  • Neeti Doshi, MD, MPH, FAAP, Primary Care Pediatrician, Children’s Health Center, San Francisco General Hospital; Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, University of California San Francisco
  • Elizabeth Castro, MHA, Strategic Support Manager, ADOBE (Averting Disparities in Outcomes by Building Engagement) Program

The Council on Brain Injury (CoBI) has announced an upcoming clinical forum entitled “Brain Injury Across the Pediatric Lifespan” on February 8, 2022, from 3:30 pm–5:00 pm. The presentation and discussion will be conducted by Dr. Juliet Haarbauer-Krupa.

Juliet Haarbauer-Krupa, PhD, is a senior health scientist on the Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Team in the Division of Injury Prevention (DIP) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Injury Center. As a health scientist, her role on the TBI team is to devise research projects and products to better understand trends in TBI in the United States and to improve health outcomes for individuals living with a TBI. She is Project Lead on the Report to Congress on the Management of Traumatic Brain Injury in Children and a scientific collaborator for clinical decision support and return to school projects in the division.

Folders with the label Applications and Grants

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center for Injury Prevention and Control’s (NCIPC) Division of Injury Prevention recently announced a new notice of funding opportunities, which include:

RFA-CE-22-006 Research Grants to Evaluate the Effectiveness of Physical Therapy-Based Exercises and Movements Used to Reduce Older Adults Falls

NCIPC intends support up to two (2) recipients for 3 years at up to $350,000 per award per year.

Application Due Date: March 1, 2022

NCIPC is soliciting investigator-initiated research proposals to support both a process evaluation and an outcome evaluation of the effectiveness of strategies commonly used to improve community-dwelling older adults’ balance, strength, and mobility and subsequently reduce their risk of future falls and fall injuries. These strategies may include different types of physical therapy-based exercises and movements such as heel-to-toe walk, sit-to-stand exercise, calf raises, and side leg raises. Of particular interest is research that focuses on populations experiencing high rates of older adult falls and fall injuries, and could include populations disadvantaged by reduced economic stability or limited educational attainment.

Questions should be sent to NCIPC_ERPO (CDC).


RFA-CE-22-007 Reduce Health Disparities and Improve Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Related Outcomes Through the Implementation of CDC’s Pediatric Mild TBI Guideline

NCIPC intends support up to one (1) recipient for 4 years at up to $550,000 per year.

Application Due Date: February 22, 2022

NCIPC is soliciting investigator-initiated research proposals for an implementation study to promote the adoption and integration of the “Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Guideline on the Diagnosis and Management of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury Among Children” in a large health care system to: a) improve mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) outcomes in children and adolescents, and b) reduce disparities in TBI-related care and outcomes.

Applicants are expected to focus on the following research questions:

What type of disparities in mTBI-related processes and outcomes currently exist at baseline in a healthcare system(s) prior to initiation of an intervention to systematically implement CDC’s Pediatric mTBI Guideline?

Does an intervention aimed at systematically implementing CDC’s Pediatric mTBI Guideline in a healthcare system(s) result in a reduction of health disparities, relative to baseline, vis a vis improved process and health outcomes?

Applicants are encouraged to supplement the mTBI Guideline implementation with added outreach efforts to children experiencing disadvantage, and implementation strategies that address TBI-related care and health disparities identified within the health system.

For the purposes of this NOFO, mTBI-related processes and outcomes include those related to the identification and treatment of an mTBI such as discharge instructions, counseling regarding return to school and return to play, communication with the school about symptoms, recovery, accommodations, as well as health outcomes. An indicator of care might be length of time between injury and diagnosis and treatment of an mTBI or the recovery trajectory of an mTBI. Disparities (health outcomes seen to a greater or lesser extent between populations) may be related to various factors of the injured child or adolescent, their family or neighborhood, or community, such as race, gender, sexual identity, disability, socioeconomic conditions, or geographic location.

Questions should be sent to NCIPC_ERPO (CDC).

Thursday, February 3, 2022
1:00 pm–2:00 pm EST, 12:00 pm–1:00 pm CST
11:00 am–12:00 pm MST, 10:00 am–11:00 am PST
