- Medical Education Program Assists Children With Chronic Illness;

Disabilities -

ST. LOUIS, Feb. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The Centene Foundation for Quality Healthcare announced today that it has awarded a $30,000 grant to Texas Parent to Parent (TxP2P) to support its Medical Education Program (MEP). Texas Parent to Parent is a statewide non-profit organization based in Austin, TX, that is dedicated to empowering families of children with disabilities, chronic illness or other health care needs to be strong advocates through parent to parent support, resource referral and education, and by educating professionals about the unique needs of these children.

Advances in medicine and technology mean that a growing population of children with disabilities, chronic illness, or other special health care needs are living at home and actively participating in their communities. The MEP works with pediatric and family practice residents, as well as other medical professionals, to widen their perspective of the needs of these children from hospital and office to the home and community. Family visits, conducted in the home of a family, enhance the physician's understanding of the impact of a child with a chronic illness or developmental disability on family dynamics, thereby building mutual respect and enhancing parent-professional collaboration.

"Many parents with children that have chronic illness or developmental disabilities can become overwhelmed with the medical decisions they are asked to make," said Kathy Bradley-Wells, president, Centene Foundation for Quality Healthcare. "The Medical Education Program offered by Texas Parent to Parent strengthens the level of understanding so needed between parents and physicians. An enhanced relationship built on mutual trust increases the opportunities for parents to make well-informed decisions and to seek help if they have issue with their child's care."
