Overview

Improving Patient/Family Engagement Through Peer Support for Parents of Children with Special Needs

Engaging patients and families to be partners with their healthcare team is of increasing focus across the healthcare system. Strengthening this collaboration has been shown to improve a person’s ability to manage their care, increase communication between people and their healthcare team, and improve the delivery of healthcare overall.  For parents of children with special needs, this engagement is important for enabling parents to get the care and support their children need.  From this webinar, participants will learn about Parent to- Parent, a national peer support program for parents/families caring for children with special needs and how peer support strengthens and accelerates adoption of key patient/family engagement strategies important for helping to achieve aims of the CMS Transforming Clinical Practice initiative.

Learning objectives:

  • Increase knowledge of national resources to support parent’s engagement 
  • Highlight how peer support advances person and family engagement and TCPi aims  
  • Enhance understanding of PCPCC SAN’s role and its resources to accelerate TCPI Practice Transformation
