The use...
Family interventions have been emphasized in the treatment of BPD and have benefits for patients' symptoms and health; however, the effects of family interventions on family function and caregivers' health-related outcomes have not been well investigated. This randomized controlled trial with 47 hospitalized patient-with-BPD/family-caregiver dyads at a medical center in northern Taiwan compared the effects of a brief family-centered care (BFCC) program with treatment-as-usual (...
The quality of palliative care is highly variable for many patients treated in intensive care units (ICUs) and their family members. To address these challenges, the investigators will test the impact of a mobile app designed to help families navigate ICU-based palliative care vs. usual care. The investigators hypothesize that the intervention will reduce patient/family member unmet palliative care needs and improve the quality of clinical-family communication in racially/ethni...
The purpose of this study is to learn how well family therapy works if given while a family member is being treated for a serious illness and whether it helps their family to continue meeting for a time after their death. The therapy aims to assist the family communication and support during both palliative care and bereavement. The investigators also want to learn how many family therapy sessions spread out over time are best for helping patients and their families. Pat...

This is a cluster randomized trial comparing the integration of family planning services into HIV care and treatment programs versus the standard referral for family planning services outside of HIV care and treatment programs within Suba, Kisumu East, Rongo and Migori districts in Nyanza province.
The study will evaluate the effect of implementing a family-centered care (FAM-CARE) program (where all HIV-positive family members are seen together as a unit and receive care together) on viral suppression and retention in HIV-positive children
The purpose of this study is to improve care in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) by focusing on communication with family members of patients who are too sick to make decisions about their own care while they are in the ICU. The randomized trial will test the efficacy of a communication intervention designed to improve communication between families and clinicians through the use of a facilitator. Outcome evaluation occurs at the level of the individual family with surveys complet...
The diagnosis of advanced, incurable cancer at different stages of the adult life span holds a variety of meanings for family members who often must play critical roles in patient care and decision-making. Family caregivers are greatly affected by the diagnosis and treatment of late-stage cancer in a loved one and may find it difficult to meet the demands of taking care of their loved one through end-of-life care and taking care of their own well-being. This grant provides fund...
Family-centred care (FCS) is considered the best practice in providing rehabilitation to children with disabilities and special needs. Family-centred care has been described as a partnership approach to healthcare decision making. As a philosophy of healthcare, today many multidisciplinary healthcare facilities have organized their services according to a family-centred approach. TheMeasure of Processes of Care (MPOC) is the most widely used instrument to assess parents' self-r...
The Family Sodium Watcher program in this study is designed to improve adherence to a sodium restricted diet in patients with HF using strategies that educate both patients and family caregivers about sodium monitoring and that stress a gradual progressive adaptation to low sodium food for both patients and family caregivers.
The purpose of the Education and Supportive Partners Improving Self-Care (ENSPIRE) study is to compare the effect of a Family Partnership Intervention (FPI) over patient and family education and usual heart failure care on physical and mental health outcomes over an 8-month period. The study will examine three ways of giving heart failure patients and their family members information. This study will help scientists determine if learning these communication skills will help pe...
Recent health policy documents have endorsed an integrated model of collaboration between pharmacists and physicians in primary care. The integration of pharmacists into primary care has been identified as a priority for primary health care reform in Canada. However, the best way to do this has not been demonstrated or evaluated. This demonstration project shows the various ways in which pharmacists can be trained and integrated into different family practice settings, the p...

The two specific aims of this project are to: 1. Develop a psycho-educational intervention called Managing Cancer Care: A Caregiver's Guide (MCC-CG), for family caregivers of patients with br...
This study evaluates the use of advance care planning conversation tools with patients attending their family doctor's office. Patients complete tools about their values and wishes, and a health care provider uses a structured discussion tool to talk about the patient's health condition and future wishes. The patient's family member/substitute decision-maker is encouraged to attend and be part of the discussions.
Background: The increase of chronic diseases has reached an increase in the suffering of advanced diseases and an inability of health care systems to give access to the population that suffers them. In this context are people with advanced cancer who are in palliative care and the family caregivers. Uncertainty in illness in palliative care and quality of life are two concepts that are altered in the patient's family caregiver in palliative care. Objective: to examine the feasi...
The overall purpose of this project is to evaluate a family-centered intervention (the Family Talk Intervention, by W. Beardslee) in families where a parent of children aged 6-19 years is seriously ill and cared for in specialized homecare. The aims of the intervention are to increase family communication, the families' awareness of the impending death and their knowledge about the cancer illness, and thereby reduce the family members' long-term psychological distress.
The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility and the effects of family-based interventions for children (aged 5-12) with neuropsychiatric and psychiatric disorders in Finnish health care settings.
This study will address the effectiveness of Family-centered Function Focused Care (Fam-FFC). Fam-FFC is a theoretically-based approach to care in which family caregivers partner with nurses to prevent functional decline and other complications related to hospitalization in older adults with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. A systematic care pathway promotes information-sharing and decision-making that promotes physical activity, function, and cognitive stimulation du...
