Kid Care CHIP proudly supports Bright Futures, prevention and health promotion for infants, children, adolescents and their families™. Bright Futures provides resources and tools on family-centered care to help parents take a proactive lead in their children’s healthcare.
Bright Futures knows that families want the best for their children and that includes good health. This starts with a great family relationship with a provider, like a pediatrician.
Tips to build a strong relationship with your provider:
- See the same provider at each visit. This will ensure the provider gets to know your child well.
- Make a list of topics and questions to discuss with your provider. Take notes so you can refer back to them.
- Discuss the next phase of development.
- Find out when and how to contact your provider between visits.
