Follow-Up Care Review Team Meetings

The Care Review Team meeting may request that the Child and Family Team schedule another Meeting.  A follow up Care Review Team Meeting may be needed due the complexity of the situation, expected situational changes that my impact recommendations, and/or strategies recommended need to be put in place prior to seeking additional recommendations.
