New CCHD Screening Resource for Primary Care Pediatricians on AAP Website
Screening for Critical Congenital Heart Defect (CCHD) is being added to the newborn screening panel in hospitals around the United States. To help primary care pediatricians navigate the implementation process and provide effective, long-term medical homes for babies with CCHD, AAP, in a cooperative agreement with CDC, has developed an online resource addressing many possible areas of concern. The site’s content, written by a panel of six pediatricians with specialties in cardiology, public health, CCHD screening implantation and more, is presented in a frequently asked question format. Topics include the rationale for screening, implementation, data collection and management, and screening in special settings such as at home or high altitudes. The site
, also offers links to additional CCHD resources and an opportunity to submit additional questions not already addressed on the site. To access this resource, click here.
