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.

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."
