Shared Plans of Care
A Shared Plan of Care (SPOC) is a tool for planning and coordinating care for select children and youth with special health care needs. OCCYSHN contracts with partners around the state to implement SPOCs in their communities.
WEBINARS: On the third Thursday of every month from 9:00-10:00 AM there is a web-based meeting about SPOC implementation, for all SPOC partners. The meetings include discussion, instruction, and technical support. An email reminder with a link to the next webinar is sent to SPOC partners monthly.
INTRODUCTION TO SPOC: On September 21, 2017 Jeanne McAllister (BSN, MS, MHA, Research
Associate Professor IUSM Pediatrics) presented to OCCYSHN's SPOC partners across the state. This webinar offers an introduction to the theory and practice of SPOC.
