What are the sources of pediatric primary care in the United States? Are these sources sufficient for providing health-care services to the pediatric population? Why or why not? All children have the right to have ideal health and access to services. A resource available to parents and providers that has a wealth of information is Bright Futures. Bright Futures initiative is health promotion foundation that provides parents with the means to empower them with knowledge and skills to promote the developmental needs of their children. Additionally, it offers providers with the delivery of orientated care through prevention-based education (Burns, et al., 2017). The sources of delivery for pediatric primary care include primary care offices, health departments, pediatricians, nurse practitioners, specialty physicians, and clinic (Burns, et. al., 2017). Home visits and care coordination programs are also available to those in poverty and or those with special needs children that are funded by federal or state programs (Beck et. al., 2016).
