Importance of a Dialogue Between Parents and Pediatrician
Dr. Laroque, chief of general pediatrics at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, discusses the importance of empowering parents to be invested in their child's care and work collaboratively with providers to determine appropriate next steps. For this innovative approach to healthcare to be successful, pediatricians and parents much be partners, rather than simply providers and consumers.
