The goal is to focus on patient engagement and emphasize the importance of the relationship between providers and patients and their families. In honor of this week, I’d like to highlight some of the resources IHI has developed for care providers, middle managers, executives, boards, and others to encourage patient and family engagement.

PROMISES (Proactive Reduction of Outpatient Malpractice: Improving Safety, Efficiency, and Satisfaction) Project

Partnering in Self-Management Support: A Toolkit for Clinicians

Strategies to improve communication between providers and patients during the office visit.

Thoughts:

I support the vision of The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), founded by Don Berwick: Everyone has the best care and health possible.

EU Patient Empowerment Campaign

EU Patient Empowerment Campaign

Resource Type: Website

EPF officially launched a major one-year campaign on Patient Empowerment on 20-21 May 2015. We will work in concert with the health community to promote understanding of what patient empowerment means from the patient perspective among political decision-makers and health stakeholders.
“Patients with chronic conditions are often referred to as the most under-used resource in the health system while patient-centered care models have demonstrated better quality of care as well as potential long-term cost-efficiencies. Too many patients are still struggling to get the support they need to become equal partners in care. To make real progress, we need to make patient empowerment a priority, starting with the development of an EU-wide strategy and action plan”

Thoughts:

No need to reinvent the wheel. Especially nice graphic
