The Practical Community Pediatrics (PCP) series was created to meet the needs of the primary care physician in the community. Our needs assessment survey revealed that the community providers are not able to attend the Grand Round at NCH on site due to the inability to leave their offices. In addition to being able to attend virtually, the specialists at NCH recognized the need for continuous education of the community providers on the care of various diseases. The specialists identified a need due to inappropriate or delayed referrals and/or work-ups. They also identified areas that the primary care physicians should be able to take care of in their offices without the need for specialist intervention.
