Paying Attention to Children in a Changing Health Care System: Summaries of Workshops.
National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council, Washington, DC. Board on Children and Families.
The complexity and constantly changing dimensions of national discussions about health care reform hold the risk that special problems of children and pregnant women will be overlooked. This monograph summarizes two workshops which discussed the important health policy issues presented by children and pregnant women that should be addressed by any major proposal for health care reform. The monograph contains four chapters: (1) "Including Children and Pregnant Women in Health Care Reform"; (2) "Benefits and Systems of Care for Maternal and Child Health Under Health Care Reform"; (3) "Protecting and Improving Quality of Care for Children under Health Care Reform"; and (4) "Strategies for Assuring the Provision of Quality Services through Managed Care Delivery Systems to Children with Special Health Care Needs." Four appendices list committees and boards; workshop participants; acknowledgments; and other publications of the Board on Children, Youth and Families, the Board on Health Promotion and Disease Prevention, and the Board on Health Care Services.
