A Pragmatic Trial of Parent-Focused Prevention in Pediatric Primary Care: Implementation and Adolescent Health Outcomes in Three Health SystemsThis study involves a partnership between Kaiser Permanente Northern California, Kaiser Permanente Colorado, Henry Ford Health System, and the University of Washington Social Development Research Group. The collaborators will conduct a pragmatic trial testing the feasibility and health impact of delivering an evidence-based, universal prevention program to parents of 11- and 12-year-olds in a pediatric primary care setting. Study objectives are to determine whether: 1) pediatric primary care clinics are a viable location for recruiting and engaging families in parent-focused prevention programs, 2) programs can be delivered with adequate fidelity, 3) stakeholders (parents, physicians and clinic staff, and program providers) are satisfied with the delivery of parent-focused prevention programs in pediatric primary care settings, and 4) program delivery is effective in preventing early initiation of substance use, depression and anxiety symptoms, delinquent behavior, and other risky behaviors common in adolescence.
