abstract

  • Information on the science of early child development has become increasingly available to the public at large. Physicians have an important role in translating the science into accessible language as well as activities for parents and caregivers to foster healthy development. A strategy to engage primary care in Ontario through the use of an enhanced 18-month well-baby visit is described.
