Children’s Health System Change Strategy: Expanding Well-Child and Family Care Project

FrameShift Group (FSG) in partnership with the Family Involvement Center (FIC) Flagstaff office will assist the Coconino Regional Partnership Council (Council) in fully understanding the need to and interest in expanding the Well-Child and Family Care Strategy in the northern portion of the region, including the communities of Page, Fredonia and unincorporated communities of northern Coconino County, which includes communities on the Navajo Nation in the county.

 

Steps and Strategies

  • Assess and map current health care services for young children
  • Assess and map the number of children birth to age 5
  • Assess and report the willingness and interest of health care providers to provide these services
  • Analysis of resources, needs and gaps in services
  • Provider and parents/caregiver structured interviews
  • Assessment and recruitment opportunities for possible expansion

     

Timeline

This Project will begin in April 2019 and conclude in August 2019. During this time our team will work with other community members to gather information, conduct provider and parent/caregiver surveys, and compile the gathered data in a report for the Council.

Behavioral and Mental Health System Project

FrameShift Group (FSG) in partnership with the Family Involvement Center (FIC) Flagstaff office will assist the Coconino Regional Partnership Council (Council) in fully understanding the early childhood behavioral and mental health system (System) across the region in order to assist the Council in identifying other systems partners in leveraging opportunities to expand and/or develop early childhood behavior and mental health services and programs in the region.

 

Steps and Strategies

  • Assess and map current early childhood behavioral and mental health service needs including geographic areas and specific at-risk populations in the region.
  • Assess and map the early childhood behavioral and mental health system in the region to display current providers, service region and capacity. This assessment will demonstrate need as well as provider availability and any gaps identified.
  • Analysis of resources, needs and gaps in services in the region with identification of challenges and opportunities.
  • Provider assessment and ongoing recruitment and retraining opportunities in the region will be completed, providing an inventory of current providers of service, gaps that may be identified and solutions to address these needs. Education and training needs will also be tallied and reported for ongoing planning.
