Lunch and Learn: The Journey of Care Navigation: From Referral to Goals Met

November 21, 2019 | 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Partners For Kids Lunch and Learn


Nurses and Social Workers


Patients and families enrolled in Care Navigation services each have their own unique journey. Some patients have a fairly straightforward journey, while others are more complex. This presentation highlights real patient and family journeys.

Our ultimate goal in Care Navigation is to prepare families to effectively navigate their child’s needs, both in the health care system and in the community. The time is takes to teach and empower each family to do this independently depends on their unique circumstances. Most families can reach this milestone within a few months, but some will take longer. We will explore the care coordinator role in supporting families along this journey.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will recognize the diverse journeys a family can take to achieve self-management of their child’s health care needs. 
  • Participants will identify the challenges and barriers the caregiver and patients face while on their journey to achieving self-management.
  • Participants will understand the role of care coordination in facilitating the journey to self-management.
