Tasha Scott to Present at Pediatric Academic Societies Meeting

Tasha Scott, PROKids student researcher, will present “Predictors of Family Engagement in Family-Centered Rounds,” as a podium presentation at the Pediatric Academic Societies (PAS) meeting in Vancouver, BC this May. As part of Elizabeth Cox's AHRQ-funded Family Centered Rounds Initiative, this research used videos of family-centered rounds and surveys of parents to understand factors associated with limited family participation during rounds. Results suggest that support may be needed to optimize engagement during rounds for fathers, for parents without any college education, and during short hospital stays. The PAS Annual Meeting is the largest international conference dedicated to the discussion of original research in child health.
