Families are an important part of a child’s care team. Communication between family members and the care team treating your child is key for your child’s ongoing care. Because of the pace of life in the hospital, it may be difficult to schedule time with all care team members in one place.
A family care conference is a specific, scheduled meeting with all care team members in the same place. A family care conference includes the patient (your child), parent(s) or guardian(s), and the entire care team.
