Abstract

While patient and family-centered care (PFCC) is currently a hot topic in medicine, it has long been a specific focus of pediatrics. The concept of PFCC includes a change in culture where physicians and patients move away from paternalism and instead view patients and families as partners in care. Although there are many ways in which adult-focused radiologists can learn from pediatric radiologists as leaders in PFCC, there remain many opportunities for improvement for all radiologists.
