Aim. The purpose of this study was to review the patient– and family-centered care studies in coronary artery bypass graft surgery.
Background. Nowadays, the length of hospital stay after cardiac surgery is reduced, and the most of the patients recover at home with their families without usual nursing and medical care. It is necessary to provide the care based on the same needs.
Methods. This is a comprehensive review of literature published between 1990-2018 about patient- and family-centered care interventions and patient/family important outcomes in adult ICUs that was conducted through searching out databases and search engines Medline, Ovid, Science Direct, PubMed and Google scholar, including English and Persian papers. In total, 73 English papers and 46 Persian papers were found, out of which 25 papers were included in this review.
Findings. Engaging families in patient care can profoundly influence clinical decision making and patient outcomes. Yet in many hospitals and health care systems, outdated visiting policies separate families and other loved ones during hospital stays.
Conclusion. Patient– and family-centered care is associated with better clinical outcomes. The clinical benefits that have been identified through a family partnership approach in these settings include decreased mortality, increased satisfaction, improved adherence to treatment regimens, and decreased readmission rates. Although high-quality interventional studies are needed to further evaluate the effectiveness of patient- and family-centered care in coronary artery bypass surgery, it is obvious this movement in healthcare is making a huge impact on family satisfaction and patient outcomes.
