Family-Focused Nursing Care




Nurses have a unique role in redefining the way we view partnerships in healthcare—

Transitioning from individualized to family-focused care is not only advocated by the Institute of Medicine; it’s becoming a way of life. Families want their perspectives and choices for their loved ones to be heard.

Try searching for family-focused nursing resources, and you may be surprised. Recent evidence-based research and strategies for family-focused nursing texts are hard to find.

That’s why we’ve made it our priority to deliver the most up-to-date educational resource to help nurses meet the goal of empowering patients and their families—throughout the entire nursing process.
