Annotation: This session of the System of Care Expansion Leadership Learning Community focuses on collaboration – among and across child-serving system partners; families and youth; and state, community, and tribal jurisdictions.

The learning community meeting provides an opportunity to talk about whether we are really doing it and how to improve collaboration to achieve system of care expansion goals. Leaders are critical to the process of collaboration, and the strategies shared will help leaders to learn how to assess and improve collaboration in their system of care efforts.

Presenter(s): Diana Autin, Tawara D. Goode, Andy Imparato, Thomas Uno. Type: Webinar Archive. Level: Intermediate Advanced. Length: 90 minutes.

Systems Integration Training Spotlight. Year Developed: 2014. Source: MCH Navigator. Presenter(s): Beth DeFrancis, MLS; Keisha Watson-Bah, PhD; John Richards, MA. Type: Interactive Learning Tool. Level: Introductory Intermediate Advanced. Length: Series, various lengths.

Annotation: This training spotlight, developed by the MCH Navigator, provides links to selected trainings and related tools on the topics of systems integration, integrated services, and systems development. It addresses a priority focus of the National MCH Workforce Development Center. At the heart of systems integration lies systems thinking, a discipline for seeing wholes, interrelationships and patterns of change. By focusing on the interrelationships among key elements within a system, and the influence of these interrelationships on the system’s behavior over time, leaders implementing improvements can pursue several goals at once, simultaneously reducing the potential for unintended consequences by predicting upstream and downstream influences and effects. By coordinating efforts across systems of care, programs to improve maternal and child health (MCH) can increase coverage and reduce barriers to the use of services and supports. Linking medical and non-medical sectors (to encompass education, housing, social services, mental health, and early childhood systems) can help minimize risk factors and promote health and wellness across the life course.
