pt partnerAs health care evolves to become more patient- and family-centered in care delivery and quality improvement, the PCPCC is working to ensure equal involvement among all members of the care team.

Through our diverse network the PCPCC’s Support and Alignment Network (SAN) supports practice improvement teams to foster partnerships with patients, family caregivers, community-based organizations and clinicians to achieve common goals of improved care, better health, and reduced costs.

New to our conference this year
, the PCPCC SAN is offering a special one-day training for patient advisors, family caregivers and their clinician partners. This training will give patients and providers the knowledge and tools needed to create and sustain meaningful partnerships in various health care settings. Participants can look forward to:

  • Learning best practices for integrating patient- and family-centered care into practice quality improvement and care redesign efforts.
  • Discovering opportunities that support clinicians in improving patient-centered care in their practice.
  • Working directly with expert faculty from the Institute of Patient- and Family- Centered Care (IPFCC), Planetree, and the YMCA of the USA to develop an action plan that includes strategies and ideas for strengthening patient and clinician partnerships.
  • Connecting and sharing information with other patient advisors and clinicians actively involved in this work.
  • Apply various training tools, including concepts from the Person and Family-Centered Care Design featured in the Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI) Change Package, to guide future coordinated efforts with their care team.

Patient advisors/partners, family caregivers, clinicians/providers, health care staff, patient experience personnel, and community partners. General PCPCC conference attendees are also welcome to participate in the training.
