Time: 10 to 11 a.m. PT / 1 to 2 p.m. ET

Webinar slides and recording available on the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health blog post: Webinar Describes Care Planning Process for Children with Special Health Care Needs

What does it take to create and implement an effective, family-centered plan of care for a child with special health care needs? Our expert speakers will discuss their approaches to the process of care planning in two very different settings-Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and a small private practice in Vermont.

Our moderator is the author of Achieving a Shared Plan of Care with Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs, a report that describes the key content of a comprehensive and integrated care plan, and lists the steps necessary to create one. To make the most effective use of the webinar time, we suggest that registrants read the report in advance of the webinar.
