We are excited to launch of the next edition of the TeamPedsTalks podcast series, FocusED sponsored by the Pediatric Emergency Care Special Interest Group. Pediatric Emergency Care is a specialty that is drawing on an increasing number of Pediatric Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRN) to deliver high quality, efficient, and effective care.  The Pediatric Emergency Care Special Interest Group (PEC SIG) provides its members with a national platform to explore the issues and unique challenges faced by APRNs caring for the unexpected pediatric patient. The PEC SIG has a diverse membership and recognizes that care in the urgent or emergent setting does not happen in isolation.  A commitment to identifying common goals and creating solutions for evolving education, practice, and legislative challenges across the care continuum led to the development of FocusED, a 12-part podcast program that offers a wide range of listeners a unique view into the broad scope of pediatric emergency care. By examining three different emergency care topics from a variety of different vantage points across the care continuum, FocusED highlights the many points of intersection between emergency care and the larger health care system.

Focus on Child and Adolescent Mental Health

As experts in pediatrics and advocates for children, the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) is excited to launch its TeamPeds Talks – Focus on Child and Adolescent Mental Health second  podcast series, which showcases innovative thought leaders equipping care providers and families for effective responses to mental health concerns.

COVID-19 has dramatically disrupted daily life and social norms for children all over the world. Although children and teens have been largely spared the widespread effects of severe illness and death, pediatric mental health has been dramatically impacted. This seismic global pandemic shift has completely changed the public narrative as families seek information and resources for developmental, behavioral and mental health concerns.

We are excited to launch our second TeamPeds Talks podcast series in early 2021, exploring mental health impacts on children and adolescents as well as on pediatric caregivers. We are looking for novel applications, new initiatives, emerging trends and compelling stories demonstrating current trends and issues in child and adolescent mental health.
