The IPR project will initiate patient- and family-centered- care rounds in adult medical and surgical rounds. Project will initially follow and measure improvement of one service team, practicing patient- and family-centered rounds, on the inpatient medicine unit, with attention to patient, family, staff and physician satisfaction; unit costs; resident and unit efficiency; and quality and safety. Educational effectiveness and team performance in PFCC rounds will also be evaluated through student/faculty culture survey (pre/post), written evaluations, student debriefing and videotaped session(s). Project results include identifying steps and strategies applicable to other adult-care units, and discovering and overcoming specific obstacles in PFCC rounds. Results will be developed into a blueprint for use in MCG units and other institutions.
