Family Centered Rounds
The Pediatric Hematology, Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplant team at American Family Children's Hospital has been conducting family centered rounds in the inpatient unit in the support of Family-Centered Care for the past several years.
The basic concepts of Family-Centered Care are that:
- People are treated with respect and dignity
- Health care providers communicate and share complete and unbiased information with patients and families in ways that are affirming and useful
- Individuals and families build on their strengths through participation in experiences that enhance control and independence.
- Collaboration exists among patients, families, and providers in policy and program development and professional education, as well as in the delivery of care
