Engaging Families as Partners in Care Using the Family-Centered Rounds Toolkit

The Institute of Medicine recommends the delivery of patient and family-centered care across all spectrums of care. In the inpatient setting, patient and family-centered rounds (FCR) are endorsed as standard practice; however, tools to support best practices in FCR are lacking. This webinar reviews the development, implementation and evaluation of a FCR checklist and associated toolkit of materials to support best practices in family-centered rounding.
