  1. Children With Special Health Care Needs By: Heidi Beutler, M.D.

  2. Definition of Children with Special Health Care Needs: Children with special health care needs are those who have or are at increased risk for a chronic physical, developmental, behavioral, or emotional condition and who also require health and related services of a type or amount beyond that required by children generally (AAP, Pediatrics 102:1, July 1998).

  3. Medical Home A medical home is an approach to providing health-care services in a high-quality and cost-effective manner. Primary care providers, families, and allied health care professionals act as partners in a medical home to identify and access all of the medical and non-medical services needed to help children and their families achieve their maximum potential.

  4. Tasks of the Medical Home for CSHCN: • Provide “regular” pediatric care (check-ups, vaccines, etc.) • Be knowledgeable • Organize the team of providers (case management) • Be available

  5. Family-Centered Care • The family is the constant. • A family is a culture unto itself. • Family issues affect the child. • The child’s problems affect the family.

  6. Family-Professional Collaboration • Facilitates open communication. • Creates an atmosphere of trust. • Respects cultural values. • Recognizes that negotiation is essential.

  7. Community Resources • Types of supports for family and child: • Natural (grandparents, friends, etc.) • Informal (support groups, respite, camps, etc.) • Formal (school, SSI, etc.)

  8. Special Needs Ambulatory Block Curriculum • Chart review and Quality Assurance for one of the resident’s patients who has SHCN. • NY Foundling Hospital: Accompany OT, PT, and Pediatric Physiatrist on evaluation and treatment sessions for hospitalized children with SHCN. • Clinic session with GI nurse clinician who treats SHCN children. • Project DOCC home visit and parent interview
