Project PARIS-Parents and Residents In Session, a research project that is being underwritten by Picker Institute, Gold Foundation, and Mount Sinai, calls for a supervised meeting between a family member of a previously hospitalized child and a resident in the context of their pediatric residency rotation as a way to bring the voice of the patient and patient’s family to the forefront, while educating medical residents about the importance of practicing Patient- and Family-Centered Care.

Following a recent site visit to Mount Sinai, it became quite clear that this initiative is not just educating residents about PFCC, it is touching their hearts and minds and leaving a lasting impact on the ways they practice medicine.
