Utah Regional LEND
The Utah Regional LEND, or URLEND, is a LEND that covers five states: Utah, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and North Dakota. It uses state-of-the-art technology to connect the groups. Professionals are trained to move beyond discipline boundaries to provide optimal services to child and adolescents with special health care needs. Because families are essential to well-being, this program emphasizes the role of family-centered care. More information on URLEND.
URLEND Learning Approach
Each year a diverse set of trainees from numerous disciplines are brought together with faculty and families of children with special health care needs, to form an interdisciplinary learning cohort. The URLEND approach is based on goals and objectives derived from MCH leadership competencies. Each long-term trainee participates in three forms of learning: didactic (classroom), leadership, and clinical.
