The Screen Scene is presented by the American Academy of Pediatrics' Screening Technical Assistance & Resource (STAR) Center. The STAR Center offers a website, aap.org/screening, with extensive resources as well as free, individualized assistance to those seeking to initiate or improve the early childhood screening process in their practice or health care system. Experts are available to provide advice on screening tools, payment, electronic medical record documentation, conversation tactics, workflow ideas, and how to make the case for screening within a larger health system. Later this year, the STAR Center will present an interactive eLearning course for all members of pediatric health care teams.
