Join Hands Together Training
This event is in two parts on one day: Part 1 of this training will be Tuesday, July 21st from 9 am-12:45 pm. Part 2 will be held later that day from 2 pm-5 pm.
The mission of the Medically Complex Training Program is to provide training to resource parents in Kentucky caring for children in out-of-home care with complex medical needs.
Since 2003, the program has developed, coordinated, and conducted this type of training for foster/adoptive parents and social service workers statewide. The guidelines for training content are established by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services Department for Community Based Services (DCBS) Standards of Practice, as well as Kentucky law.
The program provides an online orientation and the initial training, Join Hands Together, for those foster/adoptive homes desiring certification to care for children who are medically complex.
Ongoing training is provided through two statewide annual training events. At these events, 12 hours of ongoing training is provided. Foster/adoptive parents have the opportunity to select from a variety of training topics. This allows them to choose the information most relevant to the needs of the child in their care. Please contact Lisa Casebier for more information.
