Healthy Minds, Healthy Children

Social and Emotional Health Screening Project 2021

This QI project is designed to improve provider screening for social and emotional drivers of health in children under the age of 5. Through collaboration, providers treating children and adolescents will work together to improve screening, management and referral processes. Screening will be done using a family centered and strength based approach. This project is particularly timely given the effects we are seeing on young children from the coronavirus -19 pandemic.

What is the project?

  1. Establishing social determinants of health screening in children 0-5 years for at least one visit using the SEEK screening tool.
  2. Establishing social emotional screening in children 0-5 years for at least one visit (tools include ASQ-SE2, Pediatric Symptom Checklist, Strengths and Difficulties and ECSA).

Who is eligible?

Pediatricians, family medicine physicians, NPs, and PAs who work with children under age 5.
