Families: from difficult to exceptional--one team's journey

, : Families: from difficult to exceptional--one team's journey. Journal of Nursing Care Quality 22(3): 272-278

Families of patients need support when the hospital stay becomes more difficult than anticipated. Healthcare providers also need assistance when caring for them. A continuous improvement team, Caring for Exceptional Families, was initiated to develop a system with tools and interventions for a proactive multidisciplinary approach to identifying families at risk for negative behavior during the hospital experience. The process and outcomes of this team are described.
