This document includes summaries of papers and discussions presented at the first of three federally supported, national conferences on the development of policy and practices to implement the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act related to invasive procedures for children with special health care needs. Emphasis is on the interdisciplinary discussion of issues by special educators, lawyers, physicians, nurses, ethicists, paraprofessionals, health finance professionals, and parent advocates. Individual sessions with multiple presenters addressed the following topics: medical and legal issues; quality of care (structures that allow for safe and legal delegation); issues in special education (inclusion); issues of ethics, advocacy, and funding; systems change (how to influence policy making); challenges for the future and funding; and the creation of action plans. Extensive appendices include a list of speakers, addresses of advisory group and board members, speaker handouts, an annotated bibliography, reprinted articles, and ordering information for the Model Nurse Practice Act.
