A​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​ student post this as a discussion post. Please reply with 1 up to date referenceFinancial burden and poverty are common in the rural part of Maine where I am doing my clinical. The residency I am at screens for social determinants and assists with referring to other in office specialties for a pediatrics needs that may not normally be met. One example is several pediatric patients who have come in for teeth pain. Neither of them had insurance. As of 2018, the dental uninsured rate was estimated to be 2.5 times higher than the medical uninsured rate (Curt & Samuals, 2022). They were referred in house dentist who could tend to their dental needs.Other times we have collaborated with the in-house lab department to come do labs in our room while the pediatric patient was sitting on their moms lap to help keep the child calm and to keep the child from being exposed to other areas of the building to possible v​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​iruses.I also observed the residents and colleagues collaborating on the plan of care when pediatrics had rashes. The additional insight offered the child the best care and allowed the family to get as much care as they could in one location for reduced cost, easier convenience, and less time. It also allowed the providers to be able to talk and work together to provide continuity in care. By providing a collaboration of care you reduce the chance that a patient will not follow through with the recommended treatments and make it easier on the entire family (Callahan, 2021).Evidence indicates that poverty and reduced family economic resources compromises children’s ability to grow and achieve success (National Academy of Science, 2019).When we collaborate together to provide care we may be able to help pediatrics obtain the care they need and find ways to provide for the health care they need at lower cos​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​ts.
