Comments from attendees of the 2016 Conference

*Partners for Children:
California's Partners for Children (PFC) program allows eligible children receive in-home coordinated family-centered care including pain and symptom management, access to a 24/7 nurse line, family education, respite care, expressive therapies and family counseling. Children in the programs have shown significant improvement in levels of anxiety and worry and an increase in confidence.
At the same time, shifting care from a hospital setting to in-home community-based care resulted in cost savings of $1,677 per child per month on average – and this could be an important factor when we face the threat of cuts in the Federal contribution to Medicaid.
