Supporting Patient and Family Engagement for Healthcare Improvement
The Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement (CFHI) has supported healthcare organizations across Canada to meaningfully partner with patients in quality improvement and system redesign efforts. The authors discuss CFHI initiatives to enhance patient engagement efforts across Canada and the lessons learned in the context of “engagement-capable environments” and offer reflections for the future of patient engagement in Canada.
"Engaging patients, families and communities to drive health system change and improvement is a strategic focus and is foundational to the activities and programming across the organization. This paper briefly describes the approach CFHI has taken since 2010 to support healthcare organizations across Canada to meaningfully partner with patients and families in quality improvement and system redesign in four pan-Canadian learning initiatives."
