Standards for Systems of Care for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs, Version 2.0
In 2012, experts from around the country joined forces to build on decades of previous work and develop consensus standards for improving systems of care that serve children and youth with special health care needs. Now the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs, in partnership with the National Academy for State Health Policy, has released a newly updated version of those standards that sets the core components for the structure and process of effective systems of care while streamlining content for easier use by states and stakeholders. The work was supported by the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health.
