Patient- and Family-Partners

Patient- and family-Engagement (1)

Involving our patients and families in Tennessee is so important. Health outcomes are better when patients and families are informed and part of the decision making process.  Patient Family Engagement refers to the active involvement of patients and their families in their healthcare decisions, treatment plans, and overall healthcare experience.   This concept recognizes that healthcare is not just between a patient and a healthcare provider but a collaborative partnership that includes the patient’s family members and loved ones in shared decision making.

TIPQC will continue our Patient & Family Partner (PFP) statewide council.  In addition, hospitals will be engaging PFPs for all projects.  These critical members of our teams will have the opportunity for continued training through Momma’s Voices.
