The aim

The aim of the guideline is to give the family a respectful and individualized tailored, knowledge-based and safe follow-up from the professionals to ensure optimal development and safe home conditions for the child and the family. This can be secured by:

  • Ensuring that the children receive the follow-up they need, so that any unwanted development can be discovered and given proper attention as early as possible
  • To ensure individually tailored follow-up based on the condition of the child, the resources and socioeconomic situation in the family and the local health and social follow-up system
  • To give the parents the necessary competence and help
  • That the families are treated in a respectful and professional way
  • As far as possible strive to have continuity and stability in the professional following-up each family so that as few professionals as possible is involved in a given family
  • The follow-up should not add to the burden of the family
  • The ensure the economic and social situation of the family and also the financing of any necessary measurements as placements in institutions
  • To focus on the social network of the family and if necessary take measures to strengthen it
