The Out of Home Care (OOHC) module tracks all Alternative Care or Foster Care related services.
This module has the capability to record the details of the Child, Carer/Carer Household, Foster/Respite Child Referral and Carer Training.
There is a specific workflow to follow when using the OOHC Module and it indicates the relationship between the 3 main OOHC record types.
These include Carers, Birth Parents and other significant adults
The application/approval/training/review process is recorded here
