|Addressing CDC's 6-18 Initiative - A Health Systems Transformation Project|
ACPM has recently received a grant from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Office of State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support (OSTLTS) to address HST through CDC’s 6-18 initiative.
Through 6|18, CDC is targeting six common and costly health conditions – tobacco use, high blood pressure, healthcare-associated infections, asthma, unintended pregnancies, and diabetes – and 18 proven specific interventions that formed the starting point of discussions with purchasers, payers, and providers.
ACPM is currently developing year-long activities to promote this evidence-based initiative to preventive medicine physicians and understand the challenges,opportunities and the unique role that preventive medicine physicians can play in implementing these initiatives within specific populations. More information about these activities will be included in this page. Stay tuned!
