Conflict of Interest Policy
Bylaws Health Options that Matter
Health Options that Matter (HOMKC) of Kansas City
Options that Matter's heart is our belief in family centered care. We believe health care staff and family are partners, who
work together. Excellence in health care happens when we work together and honor the expertise each of us brings to every
health encounter. Family centered care is a continual effort to be responsive to the needs and choices of each family.
core concepts of Family-Centered Care are:
- Dignity and Respect-To Listen
to and honor patient and family ideas and choices and to use patient and family knowledge, values, beliefs and cultural backgrounds
to improve care planning and delivery.
- Information Sharing-To communicate and share complete
and unbiased information with patients and families in useful ways. Patients and families receive timely, complete and accurate
details so they can take part in care and decision making.
encourage and support patients and families in care and decision making at the level they choose.
- Collaboration-To invite patients and family members to work together with health care staff to develop and evaluate
policies and programs.
