Institute for Family-Centered Care - Advancing the Practice

Institute for Family-Centered Care - Advancing the Practice : " Health professionals across all disciplines--physicians, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, respiratory therapists, child life specialists, occupational therapists, and others—have the opportunity to advance the practice of patient- and family-centered care during every clinical encounter. They do so by welcoming patients and families as partners in care—acknowledging patient and family expertise and strengths, encouraging their input, and acknowledging the value of their observations and perceptions. Such clinicians collaborate with patients and families to develop care plans and evaluate ongoing care. These individual partnerships are strengthened by institutional leadership and policies that promote patient- and family-centered care through education, resources, and support for health care providers."
