AcademyHealth is a leading national organization serving the fields of health services and policy research and the professionals who produce and use this important work. Together with our members, we offer programs and services that support the development and use of rigorous, relevant and timely evidence to:Increase the quality, accessibility and value of health care,Reduce disparities, andImprove health. A trusted broker of information, AcademyHealth brings stakeholders together to address the current and future needs of an evolving health system, inform health policy, and translate evidence into action.



AcademyHealth and CAHMI Partnership

Partnership focus is on promoting well-being and healing for children through an applied focus on the prevention


management of adverse

childhood experiences (ACEs) in children, youth, and families

Specifically interested in transforming

roles of health providers and health systems to identify, prevent and address ACEs in their

communities and promote healing and positive health attributes that may buffer, prevent and attenuate the intergenerational cycle of ACEs.

Partnership activities will result in an agenda on research and policy priorities to address ACEs and communications infrastructure an materials to engage the field in continued collaboration and collective action


Project Scope

The project will focus at three levels on this issue:The clinician/family level The healthcare organization level, including hospitals, clinics, and health plans.The health policy level

For each level, we are asking:

What do we know about

ACEs and promoting child development and well-being.

What do we know about how ACEs are currently addressed?

What evidence exists?

What research questions are of highest priority to address?

What actions can be taken at each



Overview of project activities


with leading experts

and stakeholders in

child well-being and ACEs;

Publish a series of articles on the state of the science and practice in



Develop a research and action agenda through iterative, crowdsourcing methods;

Produce Champions Communications Toolkit to advance




Process and Methods

Discovery phaseSynthesis phase Dissemination phase


Discovery: Process and Methods

March-June 2014: Convene starting working group and specify goals and priorities for summit meeting and agendaMarch-June ‘14 and Ongoing: Conduct an environmental scan of research and initiativesJune 5-6, 2014: Convene early stage partners to review and further specify goals, priorities and to strengthen relationships, collaboration and facilitate shared vision


generated from “Co-Digital” input on “What concrete output should we leave the meeting with”


Synthesis: Process and Methods

July-September ‘14

: Convene working group to

agree on core summit meeting summary and core themes and components for emerging research agenda

identify topics and focus for a series of papers to commission and publish on what is known and recommendations for research and action.


urther refine the environmental scan and project niche

October-December ‘14:

Invite and gain agreement from identified candidate paper author leads.

March ‘14-ongoing:

propose and procure additional funding to ensure full funds available to commission all envisioned papers and public special journal issue


Synthesis: Process and Methods



: Launch start of commissioned papers (to be completed Summer, 2015)

April-December ‘14:

Research and write baseline paper on ACEs in children in the US (Health Affairs, December ‘14)

July-November ‘14:

Assess capacity of NSCH to produce local reports on ACEs and develop for key ACEs summit meetings focused on counties/cities.

July ‘14-January ‘15

: Develop short video based on June meeting; Develop a basic web presence to communicate about the project and continue to update and convene working groups as possible and needed.


Dissemination: Process and Methods


: Submit abstracts and proposals to report on and further evolve a collective action approach to advancing the promotion of early and lifelong health through an effective approach to ACEs.

October-February 2014:

Plan for and conduct a special panel at National Child Health Policy Conference in DC—early review and dialogue on agenda

February-December 2015

: Publish papers; complete version 1.0 of agenda; complete “Champions Toolkit”; evolve project; disseminate;


Collective Insight Questions

Question 1:

What should the specific goals of our community be related to ACEs and resilience? (e.g. the child health services research and policy community.

Question 2

: What are the research questions, policy actions and existing efforts to consider as priorities in an agenda.


Emerging Scope of Agenda

Six Fundamental Health Services and Policy Research Domains


Emerging Agenda Components

Three interlocking components comprise the emerging research and action agenda as outlined below.


Component #1:  Functions and Types of Research

Component #2:  Priority Topics and Focal Areas

Component #3:  Short Term Collaborative Actions




Component #1:  Functions and Types of Research


& Develop

: synthesize existing knowledge and design and develop new translational knowledge, methods, and


Implement & Evaluate:

adapt, implement, and evaluate existing and emerging strategies to prevent and buffer impact of ACEs to promote



& Communicate

: assess existing awareness and contribute to public, provider and stakeholder education and awareness, knowledge and action.



& Support: develop methods and capacity to scale, sprea

d and support effective prevention, intervention, and training models in the field


Component #2:  Priority Topics and Focal Areas

Meanings and Measures

: Advance standardization of definitions, measures, and




:  Promote research to address gaps in science especially pertinent to policy and practice



: Understand public health impact and opportunities for translation of knowledge into public health




Know what a healthy community is and how to address ACEs through community based collaborations and efforts



Define and measure economic impact of ACEs and return on investment through effectively addressing ACEs



Component #3:  Short Term Collaborative Actions


the Game Board

: Define a conceptual map and model to clarify definitions and foster


in mindset and norms to facilitate



Continuous Translation and Improvement

: Synthesis, dissemination, translation, and ongoing assessment of existing models, methods, and practices

Training and Capacity Building:

Provider, community, and family education and training


platform and demonstration:

Define recommendations to align health reform and systems design with needs and health improvement opportunities

Possible Questions to Consider This Morning

What should be the goals of the MCH community be related to ACEs and resilience and positive health development?

What research questions, program and policy actions and current programs should be considered as priorities in an agenda?

Why is now a good time for a broader focus on ACES in health policy?




(OR) Possible Questions to Consider This Morning

Why is now a good time for a broader focus on ACES in



will it take for the

MCH community and health

care system to respond to ACES?


do health

policymakers, program leaders and the public need

to know about ACES




are the most significant barriers to an improved

MCH response




If there is one thing you could change in health policy to make progress on ACES, what would it be?
