ICAAP > EDOPC
The Enhancing Developmentally Oriented Primary Care Project (EDOPC) was a 2005-2013 partnership of the the Advocate Health Care, Healthy Steps Program and Illinois Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics. Together, we worked to improve the delivery and financing of preventative health and developmental services for children birth to three. We built upon existing programs, such as the Health Steps model, to develop a range of strategies that primary care settings can implement to effectively provide comprehensive developmentally oriented health care. EDOPC offered online trainings, which are now available on partner websites. Visit EDOPC Education for Providers to learn more.
In December 2012, EDOPC website users and other stakeholders were offered the opportunity to complete a brief anonymous survey (approximately 5 minutes) to share their current experiences using the EDOPC website, EDOPC web-based courses, and medical professional websites generally. The feedback was gathered in order to ensure end users’ needs were being met and to assist EDOPC staff in planning for future site enhancements. This report includes highlights from this information-gathering.
