This 60-minute webinar is brought to you by Dr Sarah Knight
Synopsis of session: The philosophy of family-centred care has been embraced by paediatric rehabilitation services around the world. At its essence, family-centred care incorporates collaborative family-provider partnerships, effective communication, responsiveness to family priorities and choices, and interprofessional teamwork. Ongoing challenges in delivering family-centred care for children with acquired brain injury (ABI) are reported by paediatric rehabilitation services both nationally and internationally. This webinar will provide an overview of (a) contemporary models of family-centred care; (b) the evidence supporting a family-centred approach for children with ABI; and (c) the factors influencing implementation of family-centred care from child, family and service provider perspectives. A knowledge translation framework aimed at enhancing family-centred care in paediatric ABI rehabilitation will be introduced and key learnings from a series of projects involving the co-design of interventions targeting different aspects of family-centred care will be shared.
1) To develop an understanding of the key concepts of family-centred care in paediatric rehabilitation
2) To gain knowledge of the contemporary models of family-centred care
3) To be able to identify factors that influence the implementation of family-centred care in paediatric rehabilitation for children with ABI
