Patients and Families

A new initiative for IPEP is the development of educational programming for the parents of young patients, to help them improve their communication with health care professionals during stressful times, such as during the informed consent process prior to surgery. Based on work developed during the “Aligning Family-Team Expectations During Surgical Consent” study and online course, this project will empower parents to advocate more effectively for their child; to communicate more clearly and to ask more questions; and to make better, more informed decisions during complex situations. More details about this important work is coming soon.
