Advocating for Children, Families, and Communities


Go to module

The role of advocacy is critical in both community and clinical settings since children are often overlooked and have very little “voice” in those decisions that impact their lives. 

Purpose: Describe individual and community level advocacy through a variety of Bright Futures strategies that promote children's health and social change.

Objectives: After completing this module, you will be able to:

  • Define advocacy
  • Describe the historical development of child health policy and key legislation
  • Apply a Four Step Advocacy approach in the office setting and in the broader community
  • Describe the role of advocacy and of the healthcare provider as advocate in children’s health

Length: This module will take approximately 30 minutes to complete.
