Patient and family engagement has become a national priority. To this end, strengthening hospital practices around patient and family engagement is a key objective of OAHHS' latest initiative: The Patient & Family Engagement (PFE) Collaborative.
The goal of a PFE Collaborative is to assist hospitals in establishing a patient and family advisory program. This was accomplished through a partnership with the Institute for Patient- and Family-Centered Care (IPFCC), a nationally recognized expert organization, and there was no charge for participation.
Each participating hospital identified a multi-disciplinary team of at least two to four members who, over 15 months, participated in four all-day learning sessions, three content/coaching webinars, and five individual team technical assistance conference calls with a content expert. Hospitals received: access to multiple resources to support improvement work on PFE; a subject matter expert who can assist with improvement questions and recommendations; a LISTSERV to assist PFE improvement teams with questions; high-quality educational offerings (in-person and virtual) to enhance PFE improvement capacity and advance strategies; and the opportunity to be a part of a network of PFE leaders from within Oregon who are engaged in similar work. This collaborative completed its work in May 2016.
