January TCCAC Agenda

Hello and HAPPY NEW YEAR 2020!

So excited to embark on a new decade with all of you. Tomorrow the TCCAC Planning Committee will be hosting the January meeting from 9:00-12:00. Please view the attached agenda.

We are pleased to have a representative from CHANGE (Children’s Hospital’s Advisory Network for Guidance and Empowerment). For those of you who are not familiar, CHANGE is a youth led, youth driven initiative that advises youth, families and professionals about the transition process, especially as it pertains to navigating the health care system. CHANGE works to develop interdependence and success to youth who currently face or may face barriers when transitioning to the adult realm in health care.

CHANGE helps to support youth to:

  • Claim their voice to grow as advocates
  • Find support as they transition from adolescent healthcare to adult medicine
  • Host educational events for other young people and their support systems
  • Encourage medical providers to embrace and incorporate youth development, advocacy, and empowerment in their practices
  • Positively affect the policies, procedures, and processes at Children’s Hospital to better serve the needs of adolescents and young adults
  • Be empowered to make important and educated decisions in healthcare and other aspects of life

Additionally, we will once an OVR advisory panel will attending as well to offer additional insight from Business Services and additional info regarding the School Profile Process as well as any additional questions or scenarios you would like insight from the panel or suggestions from the council…so please come with questions J!
