Did you know that one of the tools PCMCH created in collaboration with families and providers was a “Toolkit to support effective collaboration within an integrated care team”? Integrated care teams for children with medical complexity are unique from traditional care teams in that they consist of family members and providers from various organizations and sectors who typically do not work collaboratively as one team. The goal of the toolkit is to help teams develop practices and skills that enable:
- Family team members to effectively partner with providers and feel confident and comfortable advocating for their child
- Providers to work in true partnership with families – with an emphasis on listening and collaboration
- Family and provider team members to develop shared goals and implement practices that improve care and satisfaction for the entire team
