Care Plans in the School Setting

Laura Nabors


This chapter introduces the idea of developing written care plans to assist school personnel in learning about how to intervene and handle child chronic illnesses in the school setting. Critical components of care plans, including ideas for emergency planning, are reviewed. In addition, resources for teachers, ideas for improving collaboration and communication with teachers, and ideas for working with schools are presented. School reintegration after an extended hospital stay can be challenging and research highlighting ways to make school re-entry successful are delineated. Case studies, with outlines of school care plans and interventions, are presented at the end of the chapter.
