Three-Part Series on Disease Prevention Screening

Topic #2 Guidelines for Screening Children:

Presented by David Grossman, M.D., M.P.H. Executive Medical Director, Senior Investigator, Pediatrician, Group Health Research Institute

Prevention is often viewed as the cornerstone of pediatrics and child health. This view is supported by the tremendous advances in the prevention of infectious diseases and even some non-chronic conditions, such as many types of injuries. Infectious disease prevention has resulted largely from advances in immunizations and the use of preventive medication. Injury deaths have largely been reduced by advances in environmental health and engineering, and not through clinical services. Despite these recognized advances, there are still significant gaps in our understanding of pediatric clinical preventive services, largely in the domains of screening asymptomatic children and providing behavioral interventions to improve healthful activities. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force has identified a number of key evidence gaps in these areas and issued a call for research to close these gaps. This seminar will focus on the evidence gaps in children’s clinical preventive services and will address how these gaps might be filled through a combination of different study designs that best address these gaps, including screening trials, treatment trials and observational evidence across a broad variety of conditions.

David C. Grossman, M.D., M.P.H., is Senior Investigator at the Group Health Research Institute, Executive Medical Director for Population and Purchaser Health Strategy, and a practicing pediatrician at the Group Health healthcare system in Seattle, WA. He is also Professor of Health Services and Adjunct Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Washington. In his current research and administrative roles, he leads Group Health leaders and researchers who address the design, promotion, delivery, and evaluation of population care services, including studies of the impact of health benefit design changes to promote prevention.

Medicine: Mind the Gap is a seminar series that explores research design, measurement, intervention, data analysis, and other methods of interest to prevention science. Dr. Grossman will accept questions about his presentation via email at prevention@mail.nih.gov and on Twitter with #NIHMtG.
