MacDonald, K. & Mathews, A. (2017) 398 Exploring experiences of the in-patient ward round with young people with CF, Journal of Cystic Fibrosis, vol. 16, , pp. S163,
Objectives: The in-patient ward round, which involves a bedside visit by members of the multidisciplinary team to discuss treatment, progress and discharge plans, is central to the patient experience. However, its impact upon patients is often underestimated . Research suggests that patients can feel anxious or dissatisfied with this vital clinical activity, as echoed by some patients in our Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Service. Our aim was to gain a better understanding of patient perspectives of our in-house ward round with a view to service improvement, if needed.
