Telementoring Pediatric Outreach Program (TPOP)
About this Series:
The ETSU Quillen College of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics and Niswonger Children’s Hospital are developing a tele-mentoring program for primary care providers which is structured around a series of interactive video conferences between the specialist and multiple primary care providers.
The regular interactive video conferences (using Zoom) will consist of:
Didactic and discussion will focus on the diagnosis and management of common pediatric conditions that are also commonly referred for specialty evaluation (e.g., seizures, headache, asthma, diabetes, growth disorders, etc.). The goal is to increase the knowledge base and comfort level of pediatricians, family medicine physicians, nurse practitioners on these conditions, to enhance the partnership and co-management of pediatric conditions between primary care and pediatric specialists with ETSU Health & Niswonger Children's Hospital, and to provide materials that can be used for patient education and promote patient/family self-management.
We believe the tele-mentoring model will be a particularly effective learning experience for primary care providers and provide easy access to important diagnostic and management information from specialists. Your feedback is important to ensure we understand the needs of the primary care physician in order to create a learning experience that adds value to you, your practice and your patients.
