Sondage - Qu’avez-vous pensé de l’outil clinique : Grille d’analyse des besoins des familles

Many services have been established over the past few decades to respond in an optimal manner to the needs of pregnant women and families with young children (0-5 years old) from disadvantaged backgrounds. The Integrated Perinatal and Early Childhood Services (Services intégrés en périnatalité et pour la petite enfance, SIPPE) are offered to pregnant women (or their partners) or any other parent responsible for a child under 12 months of age, living below the low income cut-off with at least one of the two following risk factors: undereducation or social isolation. The SIPPE program has three goals:

  1. improve the health status of unborn babies, children, pregnant women and parents;
  2. promote the optimal development of children;
  3. improve the living conditions of parents and children.

It is within the framework of its updated version of the SIPPE reference framework that MSSS gave INESSS the mandate to develop a grid to analyze the needs of families, common to all establishments, in order to equip professionals carrying out such analysis.

In addition to the Needs Analysis Grid (an interactive version of which to be available soon), INESSS has also made the following available:

  • a family information sheet that gathers general information about the family, the services it requires as well as risk and protective factors;
  • a Taking It Further document for in-depth exploration of a topic discussed during completion of the grid or to initiate discussion on new aspects of a family’s needs;
  • a user manual to support the analysis process, that aims to facilitate adoption of the grid by service providers and clinical attendants of SIPPE.
