C-STARS. School Based Interprofessional Case Management: An Interagency Program for At-Risk Students and Their Families.
Smith, Albert, Jr.; Oaks, Merrill
The documents in this collection provide information about the Center for the Study and Teaching of At-Risk Students (C-STARS), a center committed to meeting the challenge of providing integrated services for at-risk youth and their families. Because C-STARS is housed in a university setting, it has the opportunity to promote interprofessional and interagency cooperation. Fundamental to the operations of C-STARS is interprofessional case management (ICM). ICM attempts to ensure that services are provided in a supportive, efficient, and coordinated manner. Seven functions of the ICM model are described, and the structural components of its operation are presented. Preliminary results of a formative evaluation indicate that implementation of the model's functional and structural elements has been high in project sites. The summative evaluation design in progress suggests a positive impact on students, with reduced absenteeism and better student grades and conduct. Attachments include: (1) a list of 47 suggested readings, (2) a discussion of the C-STARS model, (3) anticipated benefits of the ICM approach, (4) background material on C-STARS, and (5) guidelines for ICM.
