School Nurse Advisory Group - April 2022
Currently, there is not an established school-health partnership between local schools and Children’s hospital and primary care clinicians. Without an identified partnership and guidance on working together, there have been gaps in care and communication. The School Nurse Advisory Group will help increase knowledge among all clinical providers to improve care and communication.
A goal of the School Nurse Advisory Group is to help improve communication and care across all aspects of the healthcare team to improve children’s health. This activity will make an impact on the interprofessional healthcare team by developing the foundation for the development of a framework between school health professionals, hospital clinicians, and primary care.
