Enhancing Quality offers a set of standards and indicators for family-centered care. The
book is designed to support collaboration among families, providers and
policy-makers along with effective advocacy in the health care system
on behalf of children and their families. Enhancing Quality presents generic
standards rather than condition-specific or discipline-specific standards.
These standards define the critical service characteristics or responsibilities
of families, providers, health care agencies, state health departments
and communities that contribute to quality family-centered care.
