Lecture Summary

Involvement of family members in the ward rounds is a novel but under-researched Patient and Family Centred Care (PFCC) intervention in adult ICUs with limited evidence on the impact it has on patient and family-centred outcomes. In this integrative review, we aimed to extend the knowledge and understanding of PFCC by synthesising empirical evidence of family-centred rounds (FCR) within the adult ICU setting and their impact on patient and family care.

Target Audience
