The Alliance to End Childhood Lead Poisoning has produced "The Community Tool Kit: an Advocate's Tool for Improving Lead Screening in Your Community".
This tool kit is intended for community members and advocates who believe blood lead screening is a useful tool in eliminating childhood lead poisoning.
The toolkit is divided into three sections:
*Part one: Why Focus on Medicaid Lead Screening, which reviews evidence for focusing attention on lead screening for children enrolled Medicaid.
*Part two: How to Target Screening to Reach the Children Most at Risk, which discusses how to use patterns of lead poisoning as a starting point of targeted screening and summarizes important issues.
*Part three: Ensuring Intensive Screening for Children in "Target Populations", discusses strategies for monitoring a targeted screening program. To download the toolkit, go to http://www.aeclp.org/ and click "HotTopics".
