Empowered #patientchat – Best Practices in Patient Engagement

Youre Invited! We hope you‘ll join us for our next Empowered #patientchat as we discuss the best practices in patient engagement.

Patient engagement can be defined as a concept that combines a patient’s knowledge, skills, ability, and willingness to manage one’s own health and care. It is increasingly recognized as an integral part of health care and a critical component of safe people-centered services

Patients want to be engaged in their healthcare decision-making process, and those who are engaged as decision-makers in their care tend to be healthier and have better outcomes.

We hope to see you Friday, September 7th on Twitter (or tchat.io/rooms/patientchat) at 10:00 am Pacific | 1:00 pm Eastern. Be sure to include the hashtag #patientchat in all your responses!

Guiding our discussion will be the following Topic Questions

T1: What does good patient engagement look like to you? #patientchat

T2: Should all patients be engaged? What do we have to gain? What do we have to lose if we aren’t engaged? #patientchat

T3: Where do you think meaningful patient engagement falls short? #patientchat

T4: What are some high-impact patient engagement strategies? #patientchat

T5: Tell us about your experiences, learnings, and tips for successful patient engagement. #patientchat

T6: How can we enable more patients to become engaged in their care? What are the barriers? #patientchat
