Pediatric Research in Office Settings STUDY
The AAP Pediatric Research in Office Settings (PROS) Research Network is seeking participants for a new research study focused on adolescent health issues: Adolescent Health in Pediatric Practice (AHIPP). This study is among the first PROS projects to take on issues specifically related to adolescent healthcare, and PROS is seeking practitioners who treat adolescents to participate.
AHIPP qualifies for Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part 4 credit
AHIPP is a randomized control trial that examines preventive services related to two major adolescent health issues: tobacco cessation and social media use. Participating practitioners will be trained in a brief intervention and each practice will be asked to enroll 100 patients ages 14+ in the study. Particularly needed are practitioners who work in areas where tobacco use is a common issue.
Please see the AHIPP recruitment video for more details: http://www2.aap.org/pros/smokevideo.htm
Practitioners interested in participating in this PROS study should contact Julie Gorzkowski, MSW at AHIPP@aap.org. For more information about the PROS network, please visit our website at www.aap.org/pros.
