Family Care Map: Sustaining family-centered care in Polytrauma Rehabilitation Centers

James H. Ford II, PhD, et al.

We surveyed and interviewed staff at four Polytrauma Rehabilitation Centers about the implementation and sustainability of the Family Care Map. Staff perceptions about sustainability were related to their commitment to change as well as involvement during implementation. The study indicated that sustainability of the Family Care Map occurs when its principles have been integrated into daily workflow and organizational culture. Outdated information in the Family Care Map and lack of staff awareness and use represent barriers to sustainability.
