Interagency Collaboration (HH)

Interagency  Collaboration

Collaboration at this point means building a relationship with community agencies that serve as resource opportunities for families; this is quite important and very beneficial at the hospital to home point. Some community agencies supporting families from hospital to home could be the hospital, pediatricians, First Steps, Health Access: Nurturing Development Services (HANDS). Or, it could be as simple as a local organization which specializes in Car Seat Safety, coaching the new parents as to the correct installation of an infant car seat. Family and extended family should be involved in planning the transition from hospital to home, as well as close friends who can provide emotional and other supports.
