The four phases of cft

The four phases of CFT

  • Phase One: Engagement and Team Preparation

    • You are introduced to your care coordinator and given the opportunity to get to know one another.

    • Your care coordinator will begin with strengths, needs and a cultural discovery process. CFT meetings with the entire team don’t happen until phase two.

  • Phase Two: Plan development

    • Your care coordinator schedules an initial meeting that is convenient for you, your family, your natural supports and any necessary providers.

    • The team will develop a hypothesis (a best guess about what the unmet need is for your child and family) and begin the planning process.

    • The process used is called brainstorming which means to think quickly and creatively and not disregard any ideas for any reason.

The four phases of CFT

  • Phase Four: Plan completion and preparation for a change in care

    • Check for “good enough” so you will know when you are done with the formal team process.

    • Celebrate success!

    • Say good bye. This is as important to finishing the process as getting to know each other was to the beginning of the process for our families. Often youth lose workers with no opportunity for closure. Take time to say goodbye.

Today s next step options

Today’s next step options

  • Do nothing further and just wait for care coordination to start.

  • Be connected with a family mentor from Better Days Ahead who can meet with you individually and teach you even more about the process and help prepare you for the start of care coordination.

And then what

And then what?

  • If you choose to just wait then nothing will happen until you are contacted by your care coordination agency. Some have an intake coordinator; some have paperwork that must be completed before the team process can begin.

What if i choose a family mentor

What if I choose a family mentor?

  • We need permission today to contact you within the next week. That person can:

    • Teach you more about the care coordination process.

    • Work with you to identify natural supports.

    • Assist you with getting needs met until care coordination begins.

    • Continue as a support once care coordination begins if you so desire.
