Abstract

The Care Journal is a tool developed by the Josie King Foundation to promote interactive exchange among providers and patients/families. The Care Journal was implemented in a pediatric intensive care unit, and surveys were administered to assess perceptions about use. Parents who used the Care Journal and nursing staff found it to be a useful tool that improved communication, made parents feel more knowledgeable and empowered, and improved parents' overall perception of the hospital stay.
