- Health Care Transitions
- Within the field of Maternal and Child Health, the PPC (and several other MCHB –funded training programs) focus on a subset of MCH, “Children with Special Healthcare Needs” (CSHCN).
- Overall, MCH often focuses on issues in early life, including perinatal issues, infant mortality, and prematurity.
- Those who focus on CSHCN focus on“…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.”
How the fields of PH, MCH and CSHCN inter-relate
MCHB’s Six Outcome Measures for CSHCN
- Families will partner in decision making at all levels and be satisfied with services.
- All children will receive comprehensive, coordinated care within a medical home.
- Families of CSHCN will have adequate public and/or private insurance.
- All children will receive early and continuous screening.
- Community‐based services are organized so families can use them easily.
- Youth with special health care needs will receive the services to transition to all aspects of adult life.
- Define MCH and MCHB
- Discuss the history and current structure of MCH programs

- Use data to identify issues related to the health status of a particular MCH population group
- Describe health disparities within MCH populations and offer strategies to address them.
- Demonstrate the use of a systems approach to explain the interactions among individuals, groups, organizations and communities.

- Provide data on what percent of CSHCN in Florida are children with asthma? How does this compare with New York?
- Provide data on how many CSHCN vs. healthy children demonstrate at-risk behaviors
Develop or participate in a program that addresses a clinical condition in the community, e.g.
- Health fair
- Educational module for school
- Advocacy activity
- Tobacco Coalition
Note: This is an activity that covers several modules
Participation in Faculty Activities
