Conceptual frameworks guide health services professionals’ understanding of relationships between multiple factors that impact both access to care and health outcomes. In turn, these frameworks identify modifiable factors that can be altered to best support the goal of maximizing wellbeing – whether that is action from a care team, evaluating an intervention within the context of a research study, or at a policy level. In some fields of study, there are well-established frameworks. This is not the case for most children and youth with special health care needs living with chronic conditions. This presentation will explore current frameworks, their strengths and weaknesses, and important implications.
