Webcast Next Week on Patient- and Family-Centered Care in the Pediatric ICU

Review the implementation of patient- and family-centered care practices in the pediatric intensive care unit (ICU) with the webcast, Comprehensive Patient-Centered Care in the Pediatric ICU, the latest offering from the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SCCM) Project Dispatch series. In this presentation, Jason L. Adler, MD, MBA, from the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital (JDCH) in Hollywood, Florida, USA, will discuss his unit’s implementation and the impact these practices have had on staff and the institution.

Daily bedside multidisciplinary rounds were introduced in 2006 at JDCH. During these rounds, active participation in care is sought from all who are present. This includes parents, patients, physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, social workers, and family advocates/educators. The program at JDCH has grown dramatically over the years and continues to anticipate many needs of patients and their families. It is integral to how care is provided, and the impact it has had is significant and far reaching.

  • Outline the patient- and family-centered care program at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital
