Family participation can be a game-changer for successful treatment 👨👩👧👦
No longer is family expected to sit in the waiting room.
According to research published in the Annals of Family Medicine in 2005, “the family contribution to individual health status is measurable and substantial.”
Since that time, great strides have been made to include family in healthcare recovery, education and treatment plans across the healthcare spectrum.
Family members are no longer expected to sit idly by in the waiting area while a patient sees their doctor, visits a therapist, or undergoes any other kind of healthcare procedure.
Physical therapy provides a unique and important opportunity for family to be involved in a very substantial way in a loved one’s care and treatment plan.
In this month’s Wellness Connection video, Dr. Matt talks about the difference family can make in a patient’s recovery and offers advice for families on how they can best participate.
