Patient and Family Centred Care
At the Alberta Children's Hospital we believe Together We're Better, where we see patients and families as integral members of the health-care team, and encourage their active participation in all aspects of care, including as partners in planning, implementation and evaluation of existing and future care and services.
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.
This is Patient and Family Centred Care at Alberta Children's Hospital.
We believe that when we practice patient and family centred care, it leads to better health outcomes, improved patient and family experience of care, better clinician and staff satisfaction, and wiser allocation of resources.
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.
