Summary:

This monograph is the third-year report of the Health and Education Collaboration Project (HEC), directed by the Hawaii Medical Association, whose purpose is to develop, test, and disseminate a model for family-centered, interprofessional training and service delivery. At the heart of the demonstration effort is the Healthy and Ready to Learn Center (HRTL). The Center offers family-centered services from an interprofessional and collaborative model, an emergent model of support based on the understanding that children grow up in complex environments. The report's sections are the following: (a) "What Is Family-Centered Interprofessional Collaboration?"; (b) "Seven Principles of Family-Centered Interprofessional Collaboration"; (c) "Health and Education Collaboration Background"; (d) "Implementation of Family-Centered Interprofessional Collaboration" (Year One, Year Two, Year Three, Health and Ready to Learn Center); (e) "Developmental Stages and Lessons Learned" (Building a Shared Vision; Staff Development; Training; Evaluation, Feedback, and Refinement; Dissemination); (f) "Implications for Future Interprofessional Collaboration Efforts"; (g) "Practice Examples of the Principles of Family-Centered Interprofessional Collaboration"; and (h) "Summary." Appendices include information on training, project updates, and project committee members.
