Patient care requires a team approach. Communication and coordination of care with patients, parents, school systems, community support groups, and medical providers is the key to providing quality care for the patient. Clinical research with institutions and industry along with national organizations provide access to additional resources for families and patients.  Chronic illness such as diabetes and endocrinology have a strong educational component. Appropriate education and assess to materials for the patient care team is the key to improved outcomes. With emerging technology and education, a community based team for management of chronic disease is needed to support families and improve outcomes.
