Summary:

This monograph describes Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) demonstration projects and summarizes the experiences of the Health and Education Collaboration Project in Hawaii. The three demonstration projects include the following: (1) the Health and Education Collaboration Project, that provides a "one-stop shopping" health, education, and family support center for culturally diverse families on the Leeward Coast of Oahu; (2) Partnerships for Change, a Vermont project to improve service delivery to children with special health needs and their families through community-based services; and (3) the Higher Education Service Integration Curricula Project, a project to assist selected colleges and universities to develop educational offerings that will cross train their students in the various disciplines so that they can affect integrated services at the local level. The monograph describes family-centered interprofessional collaboration, principles of family-centered interprofessional and collaboration, and the outcomes of the first year of the Health and Education Collaboration Project.
