F 06 Family-Centered Care or Child-Centered Care? Evidence and Ethics

Friday, 28 July 2017: 2:30 PM-3:45 PM
Summary: Family-centered care is used in hospitals for children in many countries. Evidence of its effectiveness is limited; qualitative research reveals problems with implementation. Emerging models compete to return the child to the focus of care. These presentations will discuss how an international collaboration from eight countries may integrate divergent perspectives.
