The Pediatric Care Coordination Curriculum (PCCC): An Interprofessional Resource to Effectively Engage Patients and Families in Achieving Optimal Child Health Outcomes, 2nd Edition was developed by a multidisciplinary team from across the United States, led by staff of the National Center for Care Coordination Technical Assistance at Boston Children's Hospital, in partnership with the National Center for Medical Home Implementation, through a cooperative agreement with the Maternal and Child Health Bureau of the Health Resources and Services Administration.
Phoenix Children's Hospital and the Arizona state Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Title V / Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN) program collaborated to adapt and implement content from the curriculum to enhance care coordination for children with medical complexity (CMC) and their families seen at Phoenix Children's Hospital. The adaptation was very successful, and planning is underway to facilitate additional trainings on shared plans of care and family-professional partnerships with care coordination stakeholders who attend the initial training.
- Identify motivated leaders within your community who have a stake in provision of high-value care coordination services.
- Leverage existing partnerships, projects, and initiatives that relate to care coordination activities.
- Identify "pain points" or key "problem areas" in provision of comprehensive care coordination services for your patient population.
- Ensure families are equal partners in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of care coordination training.
