Design: A special clinic was created in 2016 at Nationwide Children's Hospital to evaluate infants at risk for peanut allergy prior to introduction. This project was designed to increase the percentage of available slots that were completed.
Main Findings: Through use of reminder phone calls and education of parents and primary care providers, we were able to increase the percentage of filled appointment slots.
Impact on Practice: By evaluating more infants at risk for peanut allergy prior to introduction, we were able to assist early feeding and ideally contribute to more widespread peanut allergy prevention efforts.
