Families, Physicians, and Children with Special Health Needs: Collaborative Medical Education Models


Families of children with special health needs frequently cite difficulties in their communications with physicians and other medical professionals. Indeed, parents of high-risk, chronically ill, and disabled infants often regard interactions with health care providers as one of the most stressful parts of their early experiences with their children. This volume was designed to present a variety of medical education approaches used to overcome this problem. The models and viewpoints represented include those of physicians, early intervention professionals, professionals with backgrounds in education, psychology, and sociology, and parents.
