Event Details

Goal: To increase the Screening Liaison Nurses (SLNs) use of an ACEs lens in their work.

Learning Objectives:

  1. To increase SLN awareness of ACEs and their long term health impacts.
  2. For SLNs to understand the potential of home visiting as an intervention for ACEs.
  3. For SLNs to incorporate the ACE discussion into the continuous education & training of community partners who also support screening.
  4. To increase SLN knowledge of HBHC data of ACE-like factors acquired identified during screening and the value of accurate screening to identify families with challenges.
  5. To improve screening reach and screening quality.

Description: This webinar will review adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and their long-term impact on health and well-being. Home visiting will be considered as an intervention for ACEs and the HBHC screening tool will be reviewed as a means of identifying potential ACEs in families.
