Promoting Family-Centered Care in Children's Hospitals in California
To increase the capacity of child-serving hospitals in California to provide family-centered care; and to begin the formation of a formal family-centered care network among child-serving hospitals in the state.
The goal of this project was to organize a statewide patient and family-centered care (FCC) network of children’s hospitals and, thus, to improve the provision of patient and FCC in children’s hospitals in California. The project was led by staff at the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital which has made substantial progress toward adoption of FCC in patient care and in administrative operations at the hospital. Through conferences, conference calls, materials posted on a dedicated website, a newsletter and the provision of individual technical assistance staff from hospitals around the state were supported in their efforts to improve FCC at their institutions. A statewide FCC hospital network has been formed to continue advancing patient and family-centered care. Consequent to the success of this grant additional funding has been provided to continue strengthening FCC in California hospitals.
