This pre-conference institute will guide attendees, who are at beginning to advanced levels in their careers, on how to implement and sustain family-centered models in primary care settings. Presenters will highlight critical studies, debunk myths, and provide clinical, operational, financial, and training strategies toward making the perceived impossible, possible. Attendees will be engaged as learners and experts as they navigate their struggles and discuss how to move the needle forward in their settings toward family-oriented care. Special attention will be paid to addressing cultural, institutional, and interpersonal factors that need to be considered and respectfully addressed in any implementation plan.
