Our Principles

  • Patient and family-centred care

    At The Royal Children's Hospital (RCH), delivery of health care is based on partnerships between patients, families and all those involved in their care.

    We recognise that young people heal best when their families are part of the team, and we're committed to this approach that's being embraced in paediatric facilities around the world. It is known as 'patient and family-centred care'. The key principles are:

    • Dignity and respect
    • Information sharing
    • Participation
    • Collaboration
