NICU family care committee update

The NICU family care committee is moving ahead and I was really happy to join parents Janis and Lisa for the third meeting, chaired by Kim Dionne and with Diane, Sandy and Sonia attending. We have established objectives and are now organizing the 30 brainstorm items from February into themes. Meetings have been set for the last Thursday afternoon of each month.

Co-chair Kim Dionne, recent recipient of Sickkids's highest family centred care award, the Family Advisory Committee Humanitarian Award, listens to Janis, one of four parents currently serving and engaging this committee.

A core objective is to map family communication into a communication checklist based on work by social worker Sandy Steinwender.

The NICU has moved quickly to put in place a dynamic and committed family centred staff team and we are all excited by this evolution of a new family advisory.
