You’re Invited! We hope you’ll join us for our next Empowered #patientchat discussion on patient-centric care.
According to the Institute of Medicine, patient-centric care is defined as “providing care that is respectful of and responsive to individual patient preferences, needs and values, ensuring that patient values guide all clinical decisions.” Research conducted in 1993 by the Picker Institute in conjunction with the Harvard School of Medicine which identified eight dimensions of patient-centered care. These eight principles provide a roadmap for a patient-centered approach to the care of chronic illness.
Guiding our discussion will be the following Topic (T#:) Questions:
T1: What does care look like to you when it is patient-centered? (for appointments, results, treatment, medical records, etc.) #patientchat
T2: Have you seen these concepts put into practice? Examples? What has worked well? #patientchat
T3: Would you consider your doctor to be patient-centered? Why or why not? #patientchat
T4: What are some of the barriers to a patient-centered approach? #patientchat
T5: How can a patient-centric approach add value outside of the clinical experience? #patientchat
