The Hastings and Prince Edward Enhanced 18-Month Well-Baby Referral Map has been updated with input from the members and community partners listed, and is posted in the NO WRONG DOOR section of this website. In partnership with the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Children and Youth Services, this resource was first developed by the Network in 2011 to assist primary health care providers in making appropriate service referrals to parents and caregivers of young children during their 18-month well-baby visit. Use of this tool by family doctors and nurse practitioners across HPE continues today. The referral map is also an excellent resource for service providers working with young children and their families. Please CLICK HERE to learn more about the 18-month well-baby visit.
