🧒IMSPARK: Preventing and Mitigating Adverse Childhood Experiences🧒


🧒Imagine… Preventing and Mitigating Adverse Childhood Experiences🧒


💡 Imagined Endstate: 


The Pacific region has successfully implemented evidence-based policies and practices that prevent and mitigate adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), such as abuse, neglect, and household dysfunction. The region has fostered a health, safety, and well-being culture where children and families can thrive in supportive and nurturing environments.

💥 What's the Big Deal: 


The report by Wallace and Rademacher (2023) provides a comprehensive and practical toolkit for state and territorial health agencies to develop and implement policies that prevent and mitigate ACEs.🌈The report covers the epidemiology, etiology, consequences, and prevention strategies of ACEs and various stakeholders' policy levers, roles, and responsibilitiesThe report also provides examples of state and territorial policies and programs that address ACEs and resources and tools for policy development and evaluation. 
 
ACEs are a vital challenge for the Pacific region, as they affect the health and well-being of many children and families, especially those who face social and economic disparities.🙌By implementing evidence-based policies and practices that prevent and mitigate ACEs, the Pacific region can enhance its health, safety, and well-being and reduce the risk of adverse outcomes and intergenerational cycles of trauma. 🏥 The policies and practices can also support the region's health, safety, and well-being and enable more children and families to thrive in supportive and nurturing environments.

🌞IMSPARK: A Pacific Future with Early and Accurate Detection of Skin Cancer🌞

🌞Imagine… A Pacific Future with Early and Accurate Detection of Skin Cancer🌞

💡 Imagined Endstate: 

The Pacific region has successfully adopted the FDA-cleared device that uses artificial intelligence to non-invasively detect skin cancer in the primary care setting. The region has fostered a culture of prevention, awareness, and collaboration, where patients and health care providers can easily and quickly diagnose skin cancer and initiate appropriate treatment.

💥 What’s the Big Deal: 

The article by Bassett (2024) reveals that the FDA cleared an artificial-intelligence (AI)-powered device designed to non-invasively detect skin cancer in the primary care setting. 🌡️ Developer DermaSensor said the device uses AI-powered spectroscopy technology to non-invasively evaluate cellular and subcellular characteristics of a lesion for any of the three types of skin cancers – melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma. 🙌 The wireless, handheld device then provides a result in real time using an FDA-cleared algorithm. Skin cancer is a challenge for the Pacific region, as it affects the health and well-being of its residents, especially those who are exposed to high levels of ultraviolet radiation from the sun. By adopting the FDA-cleared device, the Pacific region can enhance its early and accurate detection of skin cancer, and reduce the risk of morbidity and mortality. 🌅The device can also support the region’s prevention, awareness, and collaboration, and enable more patients and health care providers to access and use a simple and effective diagnostic tool.
