Intro to the Family Engagement in Systems Tools (FESAT) Webinar

Families can be important drivers of systems change, using their experiences and expert knowledge in partnership with professionals to ensure that all children receive health care in a well-functioning system. Family Voices, in partnership with experienced family leaders and professional partners from community, academic, public health, and pediatric settings, has developed a Family Engagement in Systems Toolkit for assessing and improving family engagement in child- and family-serving organizations.

In this webinar:

1. Learn about the various uses of the FESAT.
2. Preview the supporting set of resources in the FES Toolkit.
3. Learn how the FESAT could be used with your organizational partners to assess and improve family engagement in systems-level initiatives.

Family-Centered Care Assessment Tool (FCCA)

The FCCA-F is a quality measurement questionnaire developed by Family Voices through an extensive collaborative process involving families, health researchers, pediatric providers and MCH professionals. The 24-question assessment measures a family caregiver’s perception of the family-centeredness of care that their child receives from a health care provider. The FCCA-F is validated for use in outpatient care settings, with families of children with special health care needs. It can be used with all families who have an established relationship with the health care provider; it is not appropriate for evaluating a single visit with a provider.
