CHA is guided by the Learning Network Model developed by the James M Anderson Centre for Health Systems Excellence (link is external) at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.
“In a Collaborative learning network, patients, families, clinicians, researchers and health system leaders work together across multiple sites to achieve a common goal for a target group of children, sharing data that drives improvement and research.
It’s an all teach, all learn model.”
The Eating Disorders Networks aim is to ensure that all children and young people with an eating disorder and their families requiring hospital care have clear support pathways and timely access to care and achieve sustained recovery of their health and wellbeing as soon as possible.
This core group of clinicians attend monthly meetings and are actively participating, with the intention of expanding participating services once the mechanics of the Learning Network are in place.
