The National Center for Family/Professional Partnerships for CYSHCN (NCFPP)


The National Center for Family / Professional Partnerships (NCFPP) promotes families as partners in the decision-making of healthcare for children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) at all levels of care.  Through a cooperative agreement with the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, the NCFPP:

  1. facilitates the work of a community of family leaders through peer mentoring, training and technical assistance;
  2. contribute to the evidence base documenting the value of family/professional partnerships and family-centered care; and
  3. engages in  reciprocal learning and partnership activities with MCHB national centers, grant program, state and local CYSHCN/MCHB programs and other strategic partners.
