In view of this, some clinical areas have chosen to focus on the achievement of a partnership approach in which families are encouraged to fully participate in the child’s care. There can be no doubt that a lack of teamwork and communication between staff and families will lead to poor service provision for children (Hall and Elliman, 2003). Lee (2004) does warn that there are usually two reasons why families participate in care, either because they want to or because they feel compelled to. One of the key aspects of working in partnership is negotiation, and it is imperative that families are not merely directed as to, or told, what tasks they should or can undertake.

WAITING It is clear from the work of Teare and Smith (2004) that children and their parents may experience prolonged waiting times in relation to healthcare provision. This inevitably leads to frustration and annoyance. It is important to remember that families may have other commitments which require organisation (particularly in relation to other children and work) and, as a result, need to know what is going to happen to their child and when. Parents have little to occupy their minds when waiting in an outpatient’s department, paediatric assessment unit or a ward.

The growth of language and communication skills requires this partnership between the child and the environment; however, the most significant partner is the adult carer because both the child and the adult need to work together to achieve mutual understanding. Initially, this mutual understanding occurs non-verbally, but later it occurs through language (Jarvis and Lamb, 2001). This process is essential not only for the development of communication skills but also for the child’s emotional development and well-being (Goldschmied and Selleck, 1996).
