Arizona Traumatic Brain Injury Program

State of Arizona, Mar 29, 2007

The Office for Children with Special Health Care Needs (OCSHCN), in collaboration with the Arizona Council for Spinal and Head Injury, received a grant to develop a coordinated system of care for children who have Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
 
At two pilot projects in Flagstaff and Tucson, OCSHCN service coordinators are collaborating with hospital staff and school nurses personnel to develop protocols that will more effectively meet the needs of children who have special health care needs and their families. The intent is to identify families where the child has received a mild or moderate traumatic brain injury, and offer services available in the community to assist with a variety of issues that might be facing the family.
