Abstract

Parents of disabled children have substantial health and social care needs and therefore, a great need for information. The Central Mass Access to Child Health Information (CATCH) project attempted to address this problem. CATCH provided these community-based, public health agency staff members with training to locate and effectively use quality Internet health information. CATCH developed a model for outreach and collaboration as well as established new community partnerships for the Lamar Soutter Library (LSL) of the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
