September 2014, Washington DC: Caregiver Action Network (CAN) announced that Victoria and Armando Nahum were chosen as one of the “25 of the Nation’s Best Practices in Patient and Family Engagement” a seven month long project to identify, recognize and publicize the best practices in patient and family caregiver engagement.
Safe Care Campaign, in collaboration with the Georgia Hospital Association and funding provided by the Partnership for Patients under the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, is proud to announce the: "Patient Perspective Series Safety Videos" a first of it's kind highlighting what Patients want you to know.
Patient and family-centered care is more than an initiative. It is the core of the health care organization. Patients and families are partners in decision-making, providing input at the point of care, in process and governance. You know when patient and family-centered care is the organization's culture when it is everyone's role and responsibility and it is embedded in its foundation.
Please use these videos with your staff, sharing how to engage patients and their families. Keep in mind that each module's key takeaways are from the patient's perspective.
