This October marks the 10th annual Patient-Centered Care Awareness Month, a campaign organized by Planetree Inc. “to engage all healthcare stakeholders in adopting and advancing patient-centered approaches to care.” This year’s theme is “The World of Patient and Family Engagement: Tools for Transformation.” Planetree offers tools to help providers, patients and family members transform the healthcare system and foster positive patient experiences.


A new Institute for Healthcare (IHI) Improvement video explores what drives mistrust of health care providers and health systems among underserved populations and how providers can serve patients in an affirming and welcoming fashion.


An IHI white paper, Sustaining Improvement, provides health care organizations with a framework for sustaining improvements in “the safety, effectiveness, and efficiency of patient care.”
