Institute for Child Health Policy at the University of Florida ( supported by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau) CSHCN-L

The purpose of the list serv is to develop an electronic forum for discussion of issues relevant to all children with special health care needs and their families, as well as pediatric health care in general. This list serv, by adopting a non-categorical rather than a condition-specific approach, provides a single location for discussion of issues pertinent to all children with special needs previously absent on the electronic superhighway. A second purpose of the list is to establish an electronic network of individuals with shared interests, both professional and personal, in the important issues for this special population of children and their families. A membership list will be constructed and maintained in an archive for access by subscribers. Each individual is encouraged to complete the short bio which will be disseminated within 1-2 weeks of subscribing. Given the current national debates about health care reform, the list will initially focus on health care reform and its impact on children, especially children with special health care needs. The list members will have the opportunity to examine the salient issues presented by this special population of children for health care reform, especially the implications of managed care and managed competition environments for these children. If you are aware of research conducted in this area, have knowledge of a private, managed care arrangement that has effectively served these children or have personal observations on this topic, please post the information to the list.
To subscribe to CSHCN-L send the following message to
LISTSERV@nervm.nerdc.ufl.edu or LISTSERV@ nervm.bitnet Ignore the "Subject" header of the email and type SUBSCRIBE CSHCN-L your first name your last name.
