An introduction to the philosophy of FCC, its origin and relationship to RMHC & uniting key stakeholders from different backgrounds.
The first Family-Centered Care conference, held at Avila Beach Hotel on Curaçao, for Curaçao, The Caribbean and Latin America brought together different key stakeholders and served as a starting point for FCC on our island and far beyond.
The focal point of this very first conference was to introduce the philosophy of FCC, its origin and relationship to RMHC. Professionals from different backgrounds—from medical to administrative—who actively provide support were brought together, and the experiences of families who lived through these unfortunate situations were shared.
The program was divided into a morning and afternoon program. The morning sessions were geared towards medical specialists, nurses, insurance partners and other professionals in the field. The afternoon sessions were focused around the families of sick children. In order to open a conversation, parents of patients were asked to share and relive their experience allowing (medical) professionals to learn from.
