The Society of Pediatric Nurses (SPN) recognizes that pediatric health care should be child-and family-centered and delivered in a way that is acceptable to patients, families, and healthcare providers (Society of Pediatric Nurses, 2008).  The expectation is that pediatric nurses, patients, families/legal guardians, and other healthcare providers will support this position statement on the Pediatric Bill of Rights, by incorporating its’ premises in all healthcare settings across the continuum of care, and thereby enhancing the child- and family-centered environment of care.  Supporting this position statement on rights demonstrates advocacy, an important component of standards of practice.
