ABSTRACT:

Recent discussions have brought attention to the utility of contribution analysis for evaluating the effectiveness and outcomes of medical education programs, especially for complex initiatives such as competency-based medical education. Contribution analysis focuses on the extent to which different entities contribute to an outcome. Given that health care is provided by teams, contribution analysis is well suited to evaluating the outcomes of care delivery. Furthermore, contribution analysis plays an important role in analyzing program- and system-level outcomes that inform program...

ABSTRACT:

Importance
Geographic proximity to a pediatric subspecialist is a key factor in obtaining specialized care. However, comparative data regarding the number of pediatric subspecialists, distribution of subspecialists, and patient proximity to subspecialists in the United States between 2003 and 2019 have not been explored; the last known national analysis was published in 2006 and used data from 2003.

Objective
To compare the number and distribution of pediatric subspecialists and patient proximity to pediatric subspecialists in the United...

ABSTRACT:

To address the substantial need in patients and families with chronic pediatric conditions, we have developed a number of free tools and resources (www.abp.org/foundation/roadmap) to help pediatricians and subspecialists achieve Roadmap’s aims.

We must act now to improve the emotional health and resilience of children with chronic conditions and their families. We urge widespread adoption of the Roadmap strategies and resources in pediatric subspecialty care and training and conduct of additional research to identify the...
