Priti Bhansali, Geeta Singhal, Kerry Moss, Robert Kavanagh, Christiane Corriveau, Jeffrey Simmons
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss various challenges encountered during family centered rounds
  2. Formulate an approach to sensitive or unexpected situations that arise during family centered rounds
  3. Develop strategies to role model communication and teaching skills for trainees during family centered rounds

Have you ever had an unexpected or challenging situation arise during Family Centered Rounds (FCR)? Does even the idea of doing FCR seem stressful, with the unpredictable nature of having to discuss sensitive topics, correct errors, and teach learners in front of both parents and patients? Then this workshop is for you. The workshop is designed for both the seasoned and novice health care provider who is interested in becoming prepared for challenging scenarios that may be encountered during FCR. Working with peers through their own case examples, participants in this interactive workshop will develop an approach to challenging situations during FCR. In addition, we will highlight tangible opportunities to role model communication skills, efficiency, and teaching skills for trainees. The session will conclude with a question and answer session with a multi-specialty panel to share experiences and strategies for addressing the unexpected during FCR. By the end of the workshop, participants will take away concrete strategies that they can share with their home institutions that will enhance the FCR process.
