About this Guideline:

Increase your knowledge in promoting family health through interventions and supports provided during expected (i.e. birth, school, adolescence, aging, and death) as well as unexpected (i.e. trauma/accidents, chronic illness, developmental delay and disability) life events.

Focusing on the family is an integral component of nursing practice. This guideline was developed to promote and facilitate continuing education, reflection and reaffirmation of the importance of caring for families.
