OPIP is leading a number of efforts that are specifically focused on family-centered, population and community-based approaches to build health and resilience in young children.
These efforts include:
- Transforming Pediatrics for Early Childhood – focused on improving equitable access to a continuum of early childhood development (ECD) services in primary care settings for children birth-to-five and improving the capacity of practices and workforce to deliver high-quality ECD services that address the holistic needs of children and families.
- Facilitation of a multi-year Learning Collaborative for Integrated Behavioral Health in Primary Care, aiming to provide feasible tools and strategies that can support integrated behavioral health to provide assessment and brief interventions to young children (birth to five).
- Follow-up to developmental screening
- Dyadic behavioral approaches that focus on young children and their parent (s), attachment and parenting behaviors
- Examining health complexity data specifically for children 0-5 and engaging community-level partners on best match solutions
