Using Kidsdata in Action
Wednesday, October 24th 12pm
Explore behaviors, identify disparities and take action through data. Kidsdata, a part of the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health, provides access to data in five topics focusing on children with special health care needs (CSHCN) living in California including Characteristics, Access to Services, Insurance Coverage, Impact on Children and Families, and Quality of Care. Some of these data are available by county and city and by subgroups such as race/ethnicity and complexity of need. Through a live demonstration, family members of CSHCN and the professionals who serve them will learn about the types of CSHCN data that are available and how to access and use these data to promote action and optimize children’s health and well being.
