The role of the CHDP Nurse focuses on the prevention of illness, the promotion of health, and support of the health promotion system. After the initial health assessment, children and youth with suspected health problems are assisted to care by the CHDP nurse.
The Case Manager focuses on the CHDP clients and providers through a process of assessing, planning, organizaing, and monitoring services and referrals that meet the multiple needs of clients while supporting the effective use of health services.
Both the Nurse and Case Manager in the CHDP Program seek to improve the health and well being of our community by advocating for children when providing case management services, health education (including resource referrals) and by coordinating measures of prevention.
The mission of the Nurse and Case Manager in the CHDP Program is to enhance the health and well-being of children in our community. This is accomplished by assuring that Medi-Cal eligible and low-income children acquire and effectively utilize available health care resources. In doing so, we foster a work environment that encourages creativity, diversity, teamwork, accountability, continuous learning, celebration of achievement and the highest ethical standards.
