Abstract

Research suggests that systems of care with strong family voice have certain characteristics. The Family Voice Assumptions, Indicators and Descriptions (FV-AID) Chart identifies these characteristics which are listed in the first column as Assumptions. The questions to identify the importance of these characteristics, the extent or implementation and the effectiveness of these characteristics are the Indicators and are listed in the second column. And, the questions to learn how these indicators are operationalized are listed in the third column, as the Descriptors. The FV-AID Chart is also used as a framework for the development of Family Voice Study protocols and activities.
