  4. 4.

  7. 7. Project PARIS Data The study is ongoing. For the first 15 residents, the mean scores on the questionnaire that was designed to evaluate attitudes towards FCC (higher score = more acceptance of FCC) were: pre-session, 22.8; post-session, 26.47. This score increase demonstrates that the teaching session leads to greater acceptance of the centrality of the patient and family in providing care.
  8. 8. Always Events We are discussing: Family choice regarding presence at codes and significant procedures Optimal times/triggers for family meetings Patient/Family choice regarding participants in family meetings Family Faculty participation in residency education
  9. 9. Project PARIS – Moving Forward If our final results are that the sessions have indeed increased the residents’ acceptance of FCC, we plan to extend these modules to other trainees (i.e., medical students), and to integrate a parent training module into the developmental-behavioral pediatrics mandatory rotation in year 2 of residency training.
