Hospitals Engaging Patients and Families

With Patient and Family Engagement (PFE) an important tool in quality improvement, hospitals and health systems across Illinois have developed Patient and Family Advisory Councils or incorporated PFE principles in other ways. You can learn about their efforts in our virtual gallery of posters. These posters, created by IHA member hospital and health systems, identify:

  • The vital role of leadership in supporting patient and family engagement;

  • How hospitals are incorporating the patient voice to enhance care;

  • The accomplishments of each organization; and

  • The minimal investment required for maximum impact.

IHA works closely with members on engaging patients and families in quality and patient safety, if your organization needs assistance or would like to discuss additional resources, please contact us for support.
