Many families are reluctant to get their children vaccinated against Covid-19, but pediatricians can help influence their decision and effectively communicate the importance of getting vaccinated. Read more here.
"Hesitant parents have real questions and concerns, Clark said, and they need to feel comfortable bringing those concerns to their pediatricians and family physicians without feeling judged or labeled "anti-vaxxers." The key is for information to come from trusted people who have cared for these families for a long time, she said."
Here's info on how pediatric practices can comply with the OSHA Emergency Temporary Standard Rules and answers to common questions via PCC.
"Employers with a staff of over 10 members must create a written COVID-19 plan. Practices with a staff of under 10 members must also have a plan, but it is not required to be in writing. For practices with multiple locations, the same plan may apply for each office as long as site-specific information is included. The practice must also designate a COVID-19 safety coordinator(s) with authority to enforce the plan where necessary and knowledge in infection control principles and practices as they apply to the workplace and employee job operations. The plan must be developed with the input of both managerial and non-managerial staff."
The AAP shares info on how toxic stress and relationships impact children and how pediatricians can help identify potential problems and support families.
"Safe, stable, and nurturing relationships can act as a powerful, protective buffer against the biological harms of toxic stress on children, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). These relationships are also key to building resilience--being able to bounce back from adverse childhood experiences. When children feel connected and supported in the early years, says a newly updated AAP report, they are more likely to become healthy, competent and educated citizens later in life."
