An Invitation to Patient and Family Engaged Care for Consumers: What it is, Why it Matters and How Patients and Families Can EngageJuly 24, 2017
As one of the co-authors, I am excited to share that the BMJ has just published, as a response to a British Medical Journal editorial, An Invitation to Patient and Family Engaged Care for Consumers: What it is, Why it Matters and How Patients and Families Can Engage.
This document was created following the publication of the Planetree and National Academy of Medicine (NAM) discussion paper summarizing the evidence for patient and family engaged care (PFEC). One of my and the CT Center for Patient Safety’s focused efforts to improve patient safety is to support a culture where patient priorities care, patient and family engaged care, patient centered care is the norm and not the exception. The original paper, Harnessing Evidence and Experience to Change Culture: A Guiding Framework for Patient and Family Engaged Care can also be downloaded. We feel that this evidence and the supporting document advances this effort and ask that you share this widely in your networks.
