The Child, Youth and Family Health Network supports the idea of family-centred care which is an integral part of The Montreal Children’s Hospital mission. The hospital has developed a number of tools for patients and parents to improve the hospital experience and support the care and well-being of children in their home environment.
Pamphlets, discharge instructions and other teaching tools are now available through the Network.
