Over the past year, I have had the honor of being a theme issue editor for the American Medical Association’s Journal of Ethics. I am excited to announce that my theme issue about “Promises and Challenges in Patient- and Family-Centered Care” has just been published!
As someone usually on the writer’s side of things, I’ve really enjoyed this opportunity to get a better sense of the editorial process. Patient- and Family-Centered Care (PFCC) is something I’m passionate about, and putting together this journal issue was a unique opportunity for me to further explore the field.
As an issue editor, I had the chance to reach out to national experts, write up several theme-related ethics cases, and assist in providing edits of the articles. It’s been a great way for me to delve deeper into one of my areas of interest in ethics.
