Welcome! The Developmental Surveillance and Screening Policy Implementation Project (D-PIP) I have no relevant financial relationships with the manufacturer(s) of any commercial product(s) and/or provider of commercial services discussed in this CME activity.
AAP Developmental Screening Update 2001 Title: “Developmental Surveillance and Screening of Infants and Young Children” u Recognition of concept of surveillance u Use of periodic screening u Use of reliable and valid standardized screening instruments u Referral for early intervention u Determine cause u Maintain community-based links
“Pediatricians' Reported Practices Regarding Developmental Screening: Do Guidelines Work? Do They Help?” u Current efforts to screen for developmental problems are inadequate for the following reasons: –Inconsistent delivery –Failure to use validated screening tools –Lack of confidence in advising patients who have developmental concerns –Lack of available resources –Inadequate training u Only 20-30% of children with disabilities are identified before school entrance u Most common developmental screening technique is clinical assessment, which detects <30% of children with developmental disabilities Periodic Survey of AAP Fellows #53 (2002); N Sand, et al., Pediatrics 2005
AAP, CDC, and MCHB Collaborations u Both cooperative agreements housed in AAP Division of Children with Special Needs –Policy Revision Committee –Policy Implementation Project u Foster increased collaboration on developmental screening and surveillance Developmental Surveillance and Screening Partnerships

The 2006 AAP Policy Statement on Screening and Surveillance Goals u Increase identification of children with developmental disorders by child health professionals –Improve methods of surveillance and screening F Greater consideration of motor and communication disorders –Provide concrete guidelines (algorithm) F Age-targeted screening –Eliminate barriers, e.g. reimbursement u Improve medical assessment
u Revision of 2001 AAP policy statement u Innovative approach to writing policy at the academy u Writing group (Policy Revision Committee) included: F Council on Children With Disabilities, F Section on Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, F Bright Futures Steering Committee, F Medical Home Initiatives for Children With Special Needs Project Advisory Committee, F Medical Informatician The 2006 AAP Policy Statement on Developmental Surveillance and Screening: New Recommendations to Improve Quality
The 2006 AAP Policy Statement on Developmental Surveillance and Screening u New Title: Identifying Infants and Young Children with Developmental Disorders in the Medical Home: An Algorithm for Developmental Surveillance and Screening u Anticipated Publication: July 2006
So, what’s next? Implementation!
Strategies for Implementation u Utilize the AAP policy statement algorithm to guide decision making u Choose a developmental screening tool with sensitivity and specificity of 70-80% u Utilize quality improvement approaches to bring surveillance and screening into the process of care – it is a whole office system endeavor, so involve all office staff u Change office procedures as appropriate (eg, scheduling, administration of tool, training, etc)
Strategies for Implementation (cont.) u Review billing processes to ensure appropriate CPT codes are used and proper payment is received u Involve parents in developing an effective office system (eg, include parents on a planning/advisory board) u Establish a practice “champion” to lead efforts, share enthusiasm, and ensure the implementation continues
AAP Developmental Surveillance and Screening Policy Implementation Project (D-PIP) u Aims to implement the new policy statement into 17 pilot pediatric practices u Goals of the D-PIP include: –Determine if the policy statement is efficiently and effectively implemented into pediatric practice –Recognize strategies for implementation –Examine outcomes of implementing the algorithm u 17 pilot sites will serve as best-practices following the project
