A courageous father playing with his daughter

Core Concepts

As you navigate the medical “system” and your family’s wishes, goals and values, you will likely come across some or all of these concepts. Understanding them will help you be the best possible advocate for your child. We have provided definitions for each concept below as a starting point. As you explore the CPN site you will also find these concepts woven throughout, providing you opportunities to deepen your understanding of each.

Your feedback matters!

We’re conducting a survey this month with parents and caregivers, and we’d love to hear from you. How have you used CPN? What do you find valuable? How can we improve?

As our way of saying thanks, all who finish the survey will receive a $10 Starbucks e-gift card.
