Kids at risk for lead poisoning don't get necessary testing

g, Kemper says.

"Based on this study, we know kids are not getting the care they need to prevent lead poisoning, but it doesn't tell us the specific reasons as to why follow-up testing is not occurring," says Kemper. "More research is still needed to best understand the specific barriers to optimal care for children with elevated screen blood lead levels and to clearly define the responsibilities of public and private health care providers."

In addition to Kemper, the study was co-authored by Lisa M. Cohn, MS; Kathryn E. Fant, MPH; and Kevin J. Dombkowski, DrPH, with the Child Health Evaluation and Research (CHEAR) Unit in the Division of General Pediatrics at the U-M Health System; and Sharon R. Hudson, RN, MSN, CNM, coordinator, Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program in the Michigan Department of Community Health.
