Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Assessing families’ needs is essential for providing effective family-centered care. In this study, seven standardized measures were evaluated for their content validity and clinical utility by 71 practicing healthcare practitioners. Although all the measures were perceived as valid and useful, wide variability among practitioners’ ratings was found. Guidelines for incorporating clinical reasoning regarding conceptual and practical aspects of measures to assess family needs will be presented.
