Pediatric Home Care Staff
During a recent training, attendees asked for resources specific to pediatric home care.  Here are the results of our desk research.  Please contribute additions and they will be compiled into a master list for distribution on the CHC website, Facebook, Twitter, and LI accounts. Thank you in advance for all who contribute.

Each year CHC provides training and consulting to hundreds of agencies, their staff of nurses, therapists, personal care providers, and aides as well as to family and other caregivers who provide in-home services to the infirm, chronically ill and disabled  to improve care, quality and safety. 

CHC received an average rating of 4.98 Stars out of a possible 5 for Learner rating of Quality and Program satisfaction across all live and online training in 2018. Also, 98 percent of CHC's Learners would recommend training sessions to a colleague!

Pediatric Assessment Tool
The Pediatric Assessment Tool (PAT) was developed in response to stakeholder feedback that objective criteria were needed to assess pediatric home health service needs. The tool is based on the OASIS home health assessment tool, was crafted with expert input from a team of developmental pediatricians, and is tailored to capture pediatric-specific service needs. It determines which service needs meet medical necessity. The PAT was revised in late 2013 by a team including provider and client representatives to refine its assessment of complex and unique medical needs. All materials on this page relate to the Revised PAT.
