Plan to attend:
From rhetoric to action: Achieving person and family-centered health systems
Date: June 10-11, 2013
Where: Sheraton on the Falls, Niagara Falls, Ontario
Despite much talk and some action, we are far from achieving a health system in Canada that is fundamentally designed to focus explicitly on people by being respectful and responsive to their preferences, needs and values. Person and family-centered care has been linked to increased quality and safety, reduced costs, enhanced provider satisfaction and an improved patient experience. Join us as we explore how health leaders can implement an integrated person and family-centered approach across the entire health system, including primary care, public health, acute and chronic care, mental health, and home and continuing care.
This year we are pleased to introduce a nursing leadership stream. This new stream will provide an opportunity to showcase nursing leadership initiatives as well as proving the opportunity to dialogue with healthcare leaders in other disciplines.
