Survey results will help determine if health care providers are delivering family-centered care.

Family Voices USA is conducting research to develop a way to measure if health care providers are delivering family-centered care. You can help by taking an online version of a family-centered care assessment tool to test how well it works. The survey will take 15 - 20 minutes to complete and will ask some questions about you and your child. None of the questions will identify you, your child or your health care provider.

Family-centered care provides numerous benefits, including fewer medication errors, shorter lengths of stay, fewer return visits to emergency rooms, and less stress on the part of the patient and family.

The survey is available online.
