Interprofessional Practise and Family-centred Care : the McDonald Family

Thanks to Valerie McDonald for sharing her presentation on Interprofessional Practise and family-centred care at the first SickKids Hospital IPP Week on November 12 2007. The McDonald family exemplifies a deep expertise and connection to SickKids as over eight years Valerie helped care for three of her children at SickKids and then served on the Patient Safety Committee and the Family Advisory Committee. I connected with her in December and she was generous with her time just as the presentation is generous and constructive with their family experience.

    This puts such a positive spin on what must have been such frustrating situations. My hat is off to her for her work in coordinating her girl's care.
