CAPHC Continuity and Coordination of Care Webinar Series

CAPHC Continuity and Coordination of Care Webinar – Finding the Gap
July 17, 2008

Please join your child and youth health colleagues from across Canada as we introduce the topic of Continuity and Coordination of Care, Bridging the Gap from Health Centres to the Community.  We will also hear and interact with two teams from institutions that have developed leading programs in this area.  Presenters will include:

Community Capacity Building for Technology Dependent Children

Children requiring chronic home tracheostomy care and ventilation have complex care needs which are unique and often do not fit into existing programs within the hospital and community setting.  Reshaping our thoughts and the way we go about providing care and how we support families and our colleagues in and out of the hospital settings have helped us to enable each other to go the distance to creatively devise services, which may not be formalized or readily transparent, within existing programs.

Working together as a team is critical and although each organization and disciplines have their distinct mandates and roles, often these require some flexibility and blurring to optimize the ongoing care of children requiring long term home tracheostomy care and ventilation.

Community Family Centred Care for Children with Complex Medical Needs and Developmental Disabilities - Integrated Children’s Services Program (ICS)

The ICS Program is an example of the successful integration of two teams who provide support for families parenting a child with complex medical and developmental needs.  This community based program, with strong linkages to both the medical and social systems, is a blend of the Medical Model, with Family Centred Practice.  In order to address the burden on families of navigating their children through a complex healthcare system, this program allows the family to access a multi-disciplinary team, and an array of services, through a centrally administered program.
