An Intersectoral Response to Children with Complex Health Care Needs
Young, Wendy; Earle, Jasmin; Dadebo, Mark
Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, n29 Mar 2004
The purpose of this paper is to stimulate debate on how to define and enact public responsibility to children with complex health care needs and their families. We present a program, developed using the Auditor General's framework for accountability that involves Community Care Access Centres, schools and Saint Elizabeth Health Care, a complex care nursing provider. The case study illustrates how public responsibility was successfully enacted at a local level within existing policies for children with complex health care needs. There is no urgent need for policy to "catch up" with reality. Rather there is a need for the cross-sectoral development of programs that support policies.
