This journal article assessed whether and how health care organizations serving homeless pediatric patients meet American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommendations. The researchers conducted a web-based survey of federally funded Health Care for the Homeless (HCH) Program grantees serving children and youth andĀ found that federally qualified health care center status was associated with meeting more AAP recommendations. The survey results indicate that the HCH programs largely meet AAP recommendations but need to integrate comprehensive care into acute visits more often. The researchers suggest disseminating best practices to support AAP guideline adherence. (author abstract modified)
