Vermont Interdisciplinary Leadership Education for Health Professionals (VT-ILEHP)
Referral for Community Consultation
The community consultation provides a training opportunity for our trainees/fellows to work with children (1-21 years of age) with complex health/developmental needs, their families and teams. The family and community team members create the questions they would like addressed by our interdisciplinary clinical faculty and trainees/fellows. An assessment in the community is completed in the fall; recommendations and action plans are developed in collaboration with the family and their team. Support to implement action plans is provided by our trainees/fellows until May of that school year.
We welcome referrals from parents, school team members, primary health care providers and other community professionals. Referrals are taken on an on-going basis and are very carefully considered to be sure the child, family, and team will be able to work together and that the experience will be beneficial to the child and team, as well as provide a great learning opportunity for our trainees and fellows.
