Families: Help Improve Family-centered Care by Assisting Family Voices with Testing a Questionnaire on this Subject

We need your help with a very special project - testing the REVISED Family Voices Family-Centered Care Assessment for Families (FCCA) questionnaire. This questionnaire allows families to evaluate the quality of the family-centered care they receive from their health care providers. It’s very important to be able to measure the quality of family-centered care in a particular situation in order to know how it could possibly be better.

For this review process, we need at least 600 parents and caregivers from around the country to complete the questionnaire, which takes about 15 – 20 minutes. This will help us know which questions work best to measure family-centered care, and what adjustments may be needed. The result will be a shorter, more powerful questionnaire that can be used to measure how effectively family-centered care is being implemented in particular health care situations.

Please help us support excellent family-centered care around the country by completing the Family-Centered Care Assessment Questionnaire http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FCCA-F-1a.

Thank you in advance for your help.
