    It is an abreviation for Children with special Health Care Needs, a Tittle V program under Maternal /Child Health. I am looking at children who are case managed
    by telephone compared to those who need a home visit by community health nurse and how soon that visit should take place. Although functional status and family stress
    tools exist, I have been unable to locate a risk assessment tool for this population.

    thanks for the answer.
    Did you try to contact a social worker at a local home health agency, or perhaps at health and human services?
    Im sure you have already searched the web also?
    thanks susan
