Course Overview

The National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs found that 14.6 million children ages 0 to 17 in the United States (19.8%) have special healthcare needs. Caring for a child with a disability or chronic health condition is often a lifelong experience for families. One in five American families has a child with a special healthcare need. If the etiology is genetic, more than one child in a family may have a disability or chronic condition. Parents of children with chronic conditions face unique systemic barriers to caregiving. This continuing education module will discuss some of the challenges faced by families and identify ways in which healthcare professionals may help empower families to adapt and potentially thrive.
