The project collaborators have agreed on the following philosophies to guide the project:
- Support and enhance services available in the community.
- Use and build on resources already available.
- Collaborate with others working on related activities.
- Utilize new and emerging communication technologies (and don’t use them when they are not efficient).
- Incorporate the input of families, health care providers, and state and local health agencies and emphasize sustainability throughout all stages of the project.
