Arms Assigned Interventions
Parents and Residents in Session
Parents and Residents in Session
Other: Parents and Residents in Session
Family Faculty members agreed to participate in meetings with pediatric residents who agree to participate. Standardized meetings include discussions of the following: 1. Impact of hospitalization on the behavior and development of each participating parent's child. 2. Effective communication with a parent 3. How to gain trust 4. The family meeting: who participates, the agenda 5. Troubleshooting: how to deal with difficult situations (the parents will present a few instances, from their own experience, which they think might be challenging to the clinicians who treated their children). Other core components will be added (or existing ones deleted) based on participants' feedback. The meeting will be attended by two residents, a family council member, and a senior faculty who will serve as monitor. Following the meeting, the residents will have an opportunity to ask questions and offer comments about the experience in a dedicated feedback interview with a senior faculty member.
Other Name: Parents and Residents in Session to improve family-centered care

Detailed Description:
A specific patient and family centered care module will be implemented in the context of an existing training rotation. This module includes a meeting between resident physicians (trainees) and parents of previously hospitalized children (members of the Family Faculty in our institution), monitored by a senior faculty member. Patient and family centered care will be discussed using predefined, manual-driven guidance. This meeting is followed by a discussion with the faculty member to identify core components of family-centered care as exemplified in the parent interview.
