Collaborative Care for Infants at Risk

2017-06-27 05:08:22 | BioPortfolio


This study evaluates the feasibility, acceptability, and impact of a collaborative care practice for infants investigated by state Child Protective Services (CPS) for suspected maltreatment. Recognizing the vulnerability of infants referred into CPS in the first year of life, as well as the frequent contact of infants with health care providers in the first year of life, we will conduct a RCT to measure the impact of a collaborative practice model linking CPS caseworkers with primary health care providers during an investigation for suspected infant maltreatment. With this trial, we will ask (3a) Can a collaborative practice model improve parent-reported infant health-related quality of life 6 months following child welfare involvement for suspected infant maltreatment? and (3b) Does a collaborative practice model impact repeat child welfare involvement for suspected child maltreatment over 6 months?
