To review extant research on family-centred care in a paediatric intensive care environment and identify gaps in the literature. Background: Family-centred care is currently a core concept in paediatric nursing, focusing on the premise that families are central to a child s well-being, and as such, should be included as equal members of the child s healthcare team.
