CAPHC - Knowledge Exchange Network

The CAPHC Knowledge Exchange Network (CAPHC-KEN) is a wiki-based, interactive, online community focused on sharing and growing knowledge in child and youth health service delivery. Initiated by the CAPHC Continuity and Coordination of Care Working Group, the CAPHC-KEN seeks to engage practitioners, patients, families, researchers and other stakeholders in a common, interactive knowledge exchange community.

In today's rapidly changing healthcare environment, timely access to and dissemination of information are of utmost importance. Expectations of professionals and of the public regarding not only access to information, but also access to services continue to rise, thus creating unprecedented pressures on the system and families alike. The need to streamline and modify services rapidly often leaves services disjointed and families bewildered at the array of services available, with, at times, little support. Better integration of services is essential in the delivery of quality, family-centered services. This is particularly evident for families of children and youth with complex care needs, who often regularly transition between acute care and community settings. Given this reality, CAPHC has accepted the challenge of improving the continuity and coordination of services across the continuum through the development and implementation of a multi-faceted national strategy, in partnership with key stakeholders. The initial stages of this initiative have focused on knowledge exchange, with a view to ultimately bring about system wide change. The CAPHC-Knowledge Exchange Network is a key component of this knowledge exchange plan.
