Module 4 - Extending Person-Centered Care to Families and Children

Extending Person-Centered Care to Families and Children

In this unit, we consider the history, principles, and concerns of person-centered, family-centered, and child-center care and relate it to pediatric audiology. Because the centeredness of care depends on child development, we consider a model of age-appropriate transitions from family-centered (ages 0-18) to person-centered (age 18+). The unit concludes with a preview of a suite of tools created by the Ida Institute designed to help hearing care professionals engage with and support children in family- and child-centered contexts.
