The National Resource Center for Patient/Family-Centered Medical Home (NRC-PFMCH), in partnership with Bright Futures National Center and the Screening Technical Assistance and Resource Center, has implemented a 2-part webinar series, Making Connections: The Critical Role of Family-Centered Care in Addressing Social Determinants of Health for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN). The goal of this series was to provide state Title V Maternal and Child Health / CYSHCN programs, pediatricians, families and other with information about the impact of social determinants of health (SDoH) on CYSHCN and their families, including implementation strategies for state programs. The series discussed the role of these groups and state systems in addressing SDoH for CYSHCN by using components of the medical home model of care.
Social Determinants of Health Resources to Support Implementation of Screening and Referrals
Developed by the National Resource Center for Patient/Family-Centered Medical Home, in partnership with the National Academy for State Health Policy, this fact sheet series discusses social determinants of health (SDoH) screening and referrals for children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) and their families. Opportunities for collaboration and partnership between Medicaid, Title V Maternal and Child Health / CYSHCN programs, and pediatricians are discussed. State-level case studies provide innovative and replicable strategies for implementing SDoH screening and community referrals.
