Family-witnessed resuscitation (FWR) can be defined as the physical presence of a family member or friend of the patient during interventions such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Family-witnessed resuscitation is a practice not universally adopted in healthcare facilities. The practice of FWR was once thought to have negative psychological effects on family members. However, more recent research has shown that the practice of FWR can be beneficial to patients and their families. The aim of this paper is to outline the perspectives and benefits of FWR on patients, their families, and healthcare providers. Common barriers to implementation, and recommendations for practice are also included.
