Please join the AHA's Physician Leadership Forum and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) for a webinar to identify key steps in positioning CME and continuing professional development as a strategic resource to strengthen collaboration between physicians and hospitals and help transform the delivery system.

Patient and family engagement is associated with fewer adverse events, lower health care costs, decreased use of services, better patient self-management, and higher patient-satisfaction scores. Earlier this year the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation funded the Health Research & Educational Trust to survey hospitals about their patient-and-family-engagement practices. Of 25 key strategies identified on the survey, half of the respondents employ eight or fewer, indicating an opportunity for improvement. On this webinar, presenters will give more detailed results from the research survey and highlight two hospitals that excel in patient-and-family-engagement practices. Speakers from these two hospitals will discuss how they implemented the practices and give actionable advice for other health care facilities.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the results of the survey  
  • Discover actionable ways to implement patient-and-family-engagement practices

Presenters:

  • Dominick L. Frosch, PhD, Patient Care Program, Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation
  • Kenneth F. Sands, MD, MPH, Chief Quality Officer, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
  • Trece Gurrad, RN, MSN, Vice President of Patient Care Services, Columbia Memorial Hospital
  • Maulik Joshi, DrPH, Associate Executive Vice President, American Hospital Association and President, HRET
