Abstract

Background: Family-centred care is an approach to the planning, delivery, and evaluation of health care that is grounded in mutually beneficial partnerships among health care providers, patients, and families. It is a widely used model in paediatrics, and is felt instinctively to be the best way to provide care to children in hospital. However, its effectiveness has not been established.

Objectives: The objective of this review was to identify the effectiveness of family-centred models of care for children (excluding premature neonates) when compared to standard models of care. © the authors 2012.
