Various tools exist to assess the quality of family-centered care that is being provided to patients and families.
Family Centered Care Assessment, Family Voices National Center for Family Professional Partnerships
Family-centered Care Measure, National Quality Measures Clearinghouse
This NQF endorsed measure relates to the proportion of children whose parents routinely received all aspects of family-centered care, specifically:
- Whether the health care provider understands specific needs of the child and concerns of parent,
- Builds confidence in the parent,
- Explains things in a way that the parent can understand, and
- Shows respect for a family's values, customs, and how they prefer to raise their child.
The family centered care measures can be found within the Promoting Healthy Development Survey.
