Rounds are monthly, hour-long interdisciplinary forums at Boston Children's Hospital, where nursing and interdisciplinary staff discuss strategies for navigating the tensions of every day professional practice, particularly as they relate to the ethical and moral underpinnings of their work. Conversations and interactions with patients, families, colleagues, and staff are often challenging and complex. Rounds are intended for clinical staff to share difficult or challenging experiences with each other in a supportive environment, and to learn practical and helpful tools for their every day practice.

Participant Quotes

I appreciated hearing about ways to meet families where they are coming from rather than utilize a prescribed plan for interventions.”

“Have support of your team, know when to ask for help and escalate concerns if necessarily in order to provide safe and effective care for the patient”
