Patient and Family Engagement Resource Compendium

A new resource compendium links users to key resources on patient and family engagement. The resources, each briefly described, are grouped into these categories:

  • Leadership
  • Organizational assessments
  • Patient and family advisory council/committee: resources for hospitals
  • Partnering to improve the quality of care
  • Engaging patients and families during the hospital stay
  • Health literacy: resources for providers
  • Health literacy: resources to help patients communicate with providers and manage medications
  • Health literacy: resources to help patients prevent adverse events in the hospital
  • Shared decision making
  • Engaging to reduce disparities

The compendium also explains how the resources can help in getting started with a new program or initiative, and it ends with a general bibliography of additional article references.
