Issue Brief: Family Navigation Implementation Strategies
The Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs (AMCHP) is happy to share a new issue brief, Family Navigation Implementation Strategies: Improving Systems of Care, that delves into Title V and community-based program strategies of family navigation that aim to better serve children and youth with special health care needs. It can be used as a tool to inform public health professionals, partners, and stakeholders about different family navigation strategies to apply in communities, and as a mechanism to connect with Title V programs that are highlighted for their work specific to family navigation activities.
