Interdisciplinary Care of Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN)
Caring for children and youth with special healthcare needs (CSHCN) has become more complex as greater numbers of children are surviving illnesses due to advances in technology and improved treatments. The current healthcare workforce is insufficient to meet the needs, of CSHCN. In the five core disciplines of medicine, nursing, nutrition, social work, and family leadership there are few professionals with specific training in CSHCN. Therefore, many healthcare organizations must use providers from these core disciplines who lack specific training chronic diseases. The University of Wisconsin Pediatric Pulmonary Center (UWPPC) on-line Interdisciplinary Course will provide training and education to improve the health of CSHCN by training leaders to provide interdisciplinary, family-centered, culturally competent, community based care.
