LEND Trainees as Family Navigators
Topic Area: Service Coordination & Integration,
NPMs: NPM 11: Medical Home
Our merged model, described in this document, therefore attempts to increase family knowledge of these groups and services, while also providing a hands-on practicum experience to the future interdisciplinary providers who might one day care for these families. This emerging practice is a framework through which other LEND sites could help trainees understand not only what resources are available, but also give opportunities for direct contact and conversations with families to deepen their understanding of family experiences during this critical post-diagnostic window.
