Webinar: Tools for Teaching Healthcare Providers to Practice Family-Centered Care
Healthier Washington Collaboration Portal, 2018
Biomedical and behavioral healthcare providers are now working more collaboratively than ever, allowing patients to be at the center of an integrated healthcare system. However, patients are often already fully integrated into other systems that have a great influence concerning healthcare decisions. Patients’ family members, for example, can have a more significant influence on patients’ health than their healthcare providers. This is especially true with behavioral and biopsychosocial conditions (such as smoking cessation, addiction, ADHD, and depression) and during times of family transition (such as infertility, maternity, children’s healthcare, and end-of-life care). This webinar focuses on family-centered care by using free educational tools to demonstrate ways of developing and improving communication skills for working with patients in their family context. These tools include the Family-Centered Observation Form and its companion, a web-based training module, which teach family-oriented interviewing skills among healthcare professionals.
