AAP Mental Health Leadership Work Group Resident Curriculum Pilot Project
September 12, 2013
The American Academy of Pediatrics’ Mental Health Leadership Work Group is calling for 10 to 15 continuity clinic preceptors to pilot a new mental health residency curriculum. The curriculum has 2 short modules, one introducing an evidence-based approach to engaging patients and families in managing mental health concerns, and one focused on recognizing and managing mild to moderate anxiety. Participation requires attendance to a 1-day training workshop at the AAP headquarters in Elk Grove Village, IL, implementing the curriculum in their residency program, and providing curriculum feedback to the Academy.
