RCPA - Rehabilitation and Community Providers Association


Family Health Forums for Parents, Youth, Professionals
September 16, 2013

The Department of Health Bureau of Family Health (BFH) is conducting outreach to stakeholders with a vested interest in children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN). BFH has determined that there are six priority issues: cultural competence, service coordination, access to information and resources, family and youth involvement in planning, pediatric medical home, and transition to adult living. One method to gather information from those involved in the care of CYSHCN is to host Parent Youth Professional Forums. The forums serve as a gathering place for families, providers ,and other stakeholders. The bureau has requested that RCPA help the Transition Community of Practice with outreach by extending an invitation to members and families to participate in upcoming forums.
