Primary care providers such as family doctors, pediatricians, and community child health nurses are a trusted first port of call for parents seeking advice on parenting issues, and routine well-child visits provide multiple opportunities for screening, support, and intervention. Pediatric practices and family-centered health settings are an ideal, nonstigmatized context for providing integrated care, including parenting support, as part of universal prevention and early intervention. This chapter describes how Triple P can be applied in brief interventions through the primary health care system to prevent and reduce social, emotional, and behavioral problems in children. Workforce development, clinic management support, and sustainable funding models are discussed as key implementation factors that require careful planning if there is to be widespread dissemination of evidence-based parenting support in pediatric primary care settings.
