Building Partnership Skills
What is the Building Partnership Skills Initiative?
In order for health systems and policy to best support children/youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) and their families, families of CYSHCN–especially those representing the diversity of the population–must be engaged in the decision making.
The National Center for Family Professional Partnerships’ Building Partnership Skills initiative aims to develop diverse family leadership across the country to participate at the systems level, while also supporting systems-level group leaders to effectively engage diverse family leaders.
