CARE_PATH for Kids: A Family-Centered Approach to Shared Plans of Care for Children with Special Health Care Needs – April 15
Shared care-planning for children with special health care needs (CSHCN) must start with a comprehensive view of the child and family and be anchored to their unique strengths, needs, context, and aspirations. The Child and Adolescent Health Measurement Initiative designed and piloted the CARE_PATH for Kids, a novel three-step, family-centered approach to the process of creating Shared Plans of Care (SPoC) for CSHCN that complements existing models in the field.
Learn how the CARE_PATH for Kids:
1. Helps families reflect on and share with care teams a summary of strengths, whole life context, unique needs and priorities, and their goals and vision for their child and family’s well-being.
2. Facilitates a close relational meeting between the family and care team to create a ‘Dashboard’ summary that serves as the foundation of a SPoC and is continuously updated over time.
Speakers will present on the development and testing of the CARE_PATH for Kids and discuss how pediatric practices can integrate the model into the SPoC. Audience Q&A is highly encouraged.
