Family Driven Care (FDC) is a framework that assists with the understanding that families are the main decision-makers within their lives and thus the care in which they participate and receive. Parents and caregivers are the experts on their children and their continual family involvement contriutes to the quality care they receive.
To learn about this initiative, we invite you to attend the Family Driven Care Learning Community Informational Webinar. This presentation will introduce the Learning Community (LC) which will enable providers to adapt a framework that assists with the implementation and applications of the principles and practices of FDC. We will review this framework and introduce the components and expectations of the learning community, including the FDC tools and our Organizational Self-Assessment (OSA). We will also share the application process to participate, which involves the selection of a Core Implementation Team (CIT) for each participating program or organization.
This free 6-month long Learning Community is focused on building family driven policies and practices in care. It will consist of assessment tools, resources, and guidance utilized by behavioral health organizations and the families they serve to promote the use of family-driven policies and practices.
Please note that only one application should be completed per agency. We recommend that your agency identify approximately 3 people to form a workgroup, which will be called your ‘Core Implementation Team’ (CIT). Your CIT will participate in a variety of activities with us from from February 2020-June 2020.
All applications are now due Tuesday, March 24th, 2020.
In-Person Trainings will now instead be VIRTUAL trainings in mid to late April.
