Access from EThOS:
NHS clinical governance recommends that parents and children are involved in their healthcare and take an active role in making decisions. Existing research does not contribute to how this policy should be implemented by professionals in practice. In the context of paediatric ESRF, there is little evidence on how professionals should involve parents and Iren in their treatment and care, or if there are any barriers or facilitators to implementing shared patient involvement. Nor is there research indicating the views of the professionals regarding the involvement of parents and children in their care. The empirical questions of this research aim to generate a greater understanding of professionals' experiences of involving paediatric patients and their parents in ESRF care.
