FAMILY CENTERED CARE: TRANSLATING THEORY INTO PRACTICE
- : Online
You may be familiar with the principles of family-centred care, but how well are you translating the theory into practice?
This session will look at how the theory underpinning the strengths-based approach, relationships, evidence-informed decision making, the `F Words' of disability, routines-based interventions and the collaborative assessment steering wheel can be integrated into your clinical practice.
This session is relevant to students and paediatric physiotherapists in hospital and community settings who would like to reflect on and improve their ability to provide family-centred care at the individual and health service level.
