Patient and Family Centred Care

At the Alberta Children's Hospital we believe Together We're Better. Patient and Family Centred Care is a partnership between patients, families, and health care professionals, based on respect and dignity, information sharing, participation, and collaboration. The video below features patients, families, and staff sharing their thoughts about what it means to be Patient and Family Centred at the Alberta Children's Hospital.

PFCC Definition

The Patient and Family Centred Care Steering Committee worked together with families and staff to create a definition of what Patient and Family Centred Care means at the Alberta Children's Hospital.

At Alberta Children's Hospital children, youth, families, staff and physicians partner together to provide excellent care.

We treat each other with respect, listen to one other, share ideas and information, ask and answer questions, create a safe environment and make decisions together.

Together We're Better.
