PROBLEM: The Institute for Patient- and Family-Centered Care's (IPFCC) definition of family-centered care (FCC) includes the following four core concepts: respect and dignity, information sharing, participation, and collaboration. To date, research has focused on the provider experience of FCC in the PICU; little is known about how parents of children hospitalized in the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) experience FCC. ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA: Articles were included if they were published between 2006 and 2016, included qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods results, related to care received in a PICU, and included results that were from a parent perspective...

BACKGROUND: The 1999 report To Err Is Human published by the Institute of Medicine estimated that between 44,000 and 98,000 deaths occur each year in US hospitals due to medical errors. However, processes to detect medically induced harm remain inaccurate and inconsistent. Hospitalized pediatric patients are at high risk for adverse events, with published rates ranging between 1% and 11% of all hospitalizations. OBJECTIVE: The study aimed to use the Global Assessment of Pediatric Patient Safety (GAPPS) tool to detect adverse events in a pediatric inpatient setting of an academic medical center children's hospital and compare to internal incident reporting methods...

BACKGROUND: Preparing families of children requiring long-term mechanical ventilation (LTMV) to manage medical emergencies at home is challenging. Opportunities for family caregivers to rehearse crisis management in a controlled setting before discharge are limited.

PURPOSE: The induction of anesthesia is known to be the most stressful part of the day of surgery for the child. Non-pharmacologic intervention is a field of great interest. The aims of this prospective randomized study were to evaluate if (1). A preoperative visit to the operating theatre would attenuate the anxiety of the child on the day of surgery. (2). A preoperative visit to the operating theatre would attenuate the anxiety of the parent on the day of surgery. DESIGN AND METHODS: Children aged 3-12years and their parents were randomly assigned to the intervention group visiting the operating theatre before surgery and the control group, which never visited there...
