Consumer and Community Engagement

The CYSHCNet National Research Network: Aiming to Create New Knowledge

Believing that CYSHCN and their families deserve the best possible health care, the CYSHCNet National Research Network was founded under a cooperative agreement with the Maternal and Child Health Bureau and the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration in September 2017. CYSHCNet has a large, multistakeholder leadership structure, including parents as partners at all levels, to promote a research agenda with potential impact across a wide range of populations.

CHWs Find Training and Empathy are Essential Tools

A Washington state program helps community health workers reach clients coping with behavioral health issues.

Supports for Engaging with Family Leaders in Title V Workforce Development Activities

While including the family perspective in the work of Title V has long been valued, the concept of full partnership is now being put into practice; coordinated and genuine collaboration is considered an attainable goal.

Elevating Family Leader Compensation from Practice to Policy

Ultimately, families are the target audience for every product, program, and service we provide, so the most successful efforts will include families in the inception, design, and evolution of programs and services. Only with their participation can we truly know if we are helping, effective, or delivering what is necessary to meet their needs. One important way to support family engagement is to financially compensate them for the time they spend working with us.
