Abstract:
A patient and family-centred approach is actively promoted by the Mount Royal College School of Nursing program. Key elements of family-centered care (FCC) are cornorstone for student learning within the 3rd year, Child Health course. FCC strategies are explicitly threaded through our lesson plans and the instructors role modeling approach is pervasive throughout class topics and clinical experience in both acute and community settings. We will share a wonderful model created to illustrate how each FCC element is in our teaching approaches. *FCC theory and concepts of dignity and respect are introduced on the first lecture day and incorporated in each of the fine learning intents. *Meaningful information sharing course materials promoting student success. *Student participation is fostered through self-directed learning while participation is encouraged and supported by creating an open avenue for information sharing, collaboration with other students. *Collaboration within the child health nursing program is supported by fostering a team-building environment between faculty and students in child health. We have found that upholding such key FCC elements guides our responses to experiences ranging from promoting student capacity to managing classroom conflict.
