EPSDT "Care for Kids"
Beneficial Telehealth Tips
Check out the Winter 2021 issue of the Iowa EPSDT Care for Kids newsletter! The lead article, “Telehealth Tips that Benefit the Provider and Patient,” focuses on using several evidence-based communication strategies to provide effective communication during a telehealth visit. Written by Kelly Skelly, MD, Clinical Associate Professor, Division of Family Medicine, University of Iowa Hospital & Clinics, and Marcy E. Rosenbaum, PhD, Professor of Family Medicine, University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine, the article also looks at stages of the visit, starting with pre-visit preparation and finishing with tips for ending the visit.
Also in this issue, as COVID-19 continues to disproportionally affect minority communities, Emad Abou-Arab, MD, Clinical Assistant Professor, Department of Family Medicine, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, shares principles that can affect a provider's ability to interact with patients in a culturally liberated manner in his article, “Factors Contributing to Health Care Disparity.”
