Systems of Care
In April and May 2023, P5FS hosted a three-part webinar series on the subject of systems of care. Many states and communities are engaged in activities to help enhance their prenatal to five system of care to provide better support to families and children. These types of approaches can be strengthened by using community based public health approaches, identifying lessons learned from years of home visiting implementation, and collaboration with stakeholders that have experience in providing technical assistance in this process.
This webinar series covered what other states and communities are doing to help build their system care. Information is shared on how to apply specific public health theories and models that incorporate/ingrain equity into the processes that help to (re)build, implement, and evaluate a system of care. Application of these models was discussed to see what other best practices are currently happening in the field that help build capacity and infrastructure, including fiscal mapping and cost modeling of core system of care components, to support sustainability efforts while improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the system.
In the first part of this system of care webinar series the following key concepts were explored:
What is a system of care? Why is it critical to families and communities?
What are challenges to implementing a system of care?
Addressing the implementation challenges
Building intentional collaboration strategies
The second and third webinars in this series covered:
What other states and communities are doing to help build their system care
Best practices in the field that help build capacity and infrastructure
Sustainability efforts while improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the system.
