Family-centred service: Developing and validating a self-assessment tool for pediatric service providers

This study was designed to develop a self-assessment tool for pediatric health professionals, to measure their self-reported implementation of family-centred. The Measure of Processes of Care for Service Providers, adapted from the parent measure the Measure of Processes of Care, is the resulting outcome measure. It is a discriminative tool useful for educational, program evaluation, professional development and research initiatives.
