The 6th International Conference on Patient- and Family-Centered Care: Partnerships for Quality and Safety will offer patient- and family-centered strategies that address the increasing challenges in health care such as rising costs, fluctuating patient satisfaction scores, and delivering safe and quality care for each and every patient—reducing readmissions, decreasing infections, and providing safe care transitions.

In addition to the strong programming featuring best practices in patient- and family-centered care initiatives from programs around North America and the world, the Institute for Patient- and Family-Centered Care is partnering with innovative non-profit organizations focused on improving health care:

Patient- and Family-Centered Care offers a framework to respond to the increasing complexities of health care. Sessions will offer practical strategies for redesigning systems of care, changing culture, and partnering with patients and families to improve outcomes. Throughout the conference, participants will observe the value of partnering with patients and families to address challenges, such as the expanding use of technology, the need for new facilities, the risk of medical error, improving transitions in care, redesigning the primary care system, the increasing numbers of people living with chronic conditions, and the pressure to control costs. Partnerships with patients and families are integral to the practice of patient- and family-centered care. These powerful partnerships are essential to redesigning health care and improving quality and safety and the experience of care.
