Office for Children with Special Health Care Needs
OCSHCN can serve as an educational resource that Arizona school nurses can utilize to address and meet the needs of children and young adults with special health care needs (SHCN), physical, developmental, or chronic illnesses. OCSHCN can provide technical assistance on policies, implementation, and training related to including children and youth with SHCN in school settings and provide resources for linking families to services.
School nurses have a unique role in providing school health services to children and young adults with special health care needs, including those with chronic illnesses and disabilities who may require coordination of care and services. Care coordination is a central, ongoing component of an effective system of care for children and young adults with SHCN and their families.
The Medical Home Care Coordination Manual is a resource for school nurses and other educational professionals who work closely with children and young adults with SHCN and their families. To ensure that the Medical Home Care Coordination Manual is such an effective resource to you as a school nurse, OCSHCN seeks your feedback on the usefulness of this tool in supporting the students with whom you work by completing this brief evaluation.
