Fragmented central resources that require
transportation or research to locate
Given the socioeconomic and immigration status of the Sheridan community, barriers to access of care and resources pose a significant public health concern
Known population of low-income individuals and
undocumented workers unable to receive or utilize
many government resources
Community knowledge deficit of available resources
There is a strong correlation between child poverty and vulnerability to poor health status

Increasing access to care leads to better health outcomes

Community clinics can effectively connect pediatric patients and families to community resources, thereby increasing access to health care:
"A fundamental tenet of pediatric primary care is viewing the child in the context of family and community, and promoting community relationships and resources at health supervision visits”
(Garg, Sarkar, Marino, Onie, & Solomon, 2010, p. 251)
Staff and volunteers meet with at-risk families to educate and connect them to available community resources

Most patients are referred to the FHD by healthcare providers working in urban community clinics

This requires dedicated space, training, and personnel resources, to which many independent community clinics have limited access

has a binder of community resources
to connect patients with services
"The current community resource guide
is underutilized, out of date, and disorganized"

By June 30, 2014, staff and volunteers of Sheridan Health Services Pediatric Clinic (SHSPC) will be presented and familiarized with the updated resource guide binder and given instruction on how to utilize the resource, as evidenced by a clinic-wide meeting including all SHSPC staff, volunteers, and the authors of the new guide.

By September 30, 2014, staff and volunteers of Sheridan Health Services Pediatric Clinic, will have completed the provided written survey to assess utilization and usefulness of binder as evidenced by 20 completed surveys.

By December 31, 2014, Sheridan Health Services Pediatric Clinic will have provided additional resources to at least 50 clients through information gleaned from the updated resource guide.
Resources Needed
The staff and volunteers need to be aware of the available resource and willing to access it daily for best utilization
Buy In!
Volunteer nursing students, computers, phones, binders, and printing services
Time to collect all data for the resource binder is roughly 4 weeks split between 5 volunteers
to assess utilization and usefulness of binder

Provide survey to pediatric clinical group 3 different times:
1. Before new binder is implemented - determine baseline
2. 3 months after new binder implementation
3. 6 months after new binder implementation

Ask pediatric providers, nurses, MAs, and administrative personnel to complete the survey
(US Census Bureau, 2014a)
(US Census Bureau, 2014a)
Have you utilized binder?
(1=never, 3=sometimes, 5=often)

With how many patients have you utilized the binder?

Usefulness of included resources
(1=not useful, 3=somewhat useful, 5=very useful)

Completeness of resources included
(1=incomplete, 3=somewhat complete, 5=very complete)
