Our services

We pride ourselves on placing the needs of children, young people and their families at the heart of everything we do at Children’s Health Queensland. We acknowledge that a child or young person’s family knows them best and can provide an important perspective for our health professionals when they are involved as members of their child’s care team.

By partnering with parents and carers, our staff can better understand a patient’s individual needs and make more informed care decisions. Likewise, parents can make better decisions for their children when they have all the information and support they need.

To ensure we put this into practice, Children’s Health Queensland has committed to an approach that has been adopted by paediatric hospitals around the world. It is known as patient and family-centred care and is based on the four key principles or respect and dignity, information sharing, participation, and collaboration.
