Course Objectives

Part 1: The Primary Care Model for the Perinatal + Early Childhood Population

  1. Compare the differences of providing care to the mother/baby unit versus exclusive focus on the individual. 
  2. Recall the clinical and logistical framework(s) that a clinician would benefit from before offering this care model. 
  3. Recall how this model of care can be offered in various settings (mobile/hybrid small scale, hospital in patient scale, hospital outpatient scale etc). 
  4. Identify the key referral points or team members included on the perinatal person’s team. 5. Identify the key referral points or team members included on the child’s team.

Part 2: Screening & Evaluation Considerations Across the Continuum

  1. Define points of entry for care of the mother and care of the child and deem whether a client is appropriate for this model of care. 
  2. Advise and assist the mother in building an appropriate team of providers for each phase of the perinatal and early childhood timeframes. 
  3. Recall the evaluation considerations for the pregnant, early postpartum, mid postpartum and later postpartum client.
  4. Recall the motor/developmental windows for the early childhood population (ranging from birth to kindergarten ages).
