Abstract

Objective. To determine the effectiveness of an innovative curriculum, using trigger videos modeling screening for social determinants of health (SDH), on the comfort and screening practices of pediatric residents during well-child care. Methods. A nonrandomized controlled study of an educational intervention was performed. Resident surveys assessing knowledge, comfort, and screening practices for SDH were performed pre- and post-intervention. Subsets of control and intervention residents were observed pre- and post-intervention to determine changes in SDH screening practices. Results. Thirty-six residents completed the study. Intervention residents spent more time screening (P =.04), and inquired more frequently about family supports (P =.046) and housing conditions (P =.045). Intervention residents were less likely to note lack of knowledge and discomfort as barriers to screening. Conclusions. A curriculum incorporating trigger videos modeling SDH screening increased screening time and inquiry for a number of SDH by pediatric residents. Fewer barriers to screening were noted following the curriculum.
