Patient Safety Tool: Leadership Guide for Patient, Family Engagement

The American Hospital Association's Health Research & Educational Trust and Hospitals in Pursuit of Excellence offer a complimentary "Leadership Resource for Patient and Family Engagement Strategies."

The tool, published in July, builds on AHA's earlier report, "Engaging Health Care Users: A Framework for Healthy Individuals and Communities," and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality's "Guide to Patient and Family Engagement in Hospital Safety and Quality."  The leadership resource presents evidence-based, practical steps health system leaders can take to improve patient and family engagement, and includes checklists and examples of engagement strategies.

Download the resource for patient and family engagement strategies for use in your own facility.

Note: View our database providing more than 400 reports that link to free downloadable and adaptable tools for use in surgery centers, hospitals and other organizations.
