Patient-Centered Care has emerged as a way for healthcare organizations to achieve better quality and lower costs. Active partnerships with patients and their families are essential to improving healthcare outcomes. Patient and family advisory councils (PFACs) seek to integrate the perspectives of patients and families into care delivery and the healthcare environment. Councils build and strengthen partnerships with clinicians and leadership to improve the healthcare organization.  Presenters from three hospitals will share how patient/family advisory councils are functioning in their facilities and will participate in a panel discussion.

It is important to build a culture in which all leaders and workforce understand principles of patient safety and support the reporting of errors, lapses, miss-steps, and adverse events. Establishing organizational behavior expectations allows the organization to promote transparency, effective teamwork, active communication, respect, and timely feedback, in sustaining a culture of safety. Presenters from three hospitals will address the culture of safety at their facilities, necessary to ensure patient and workforce safety and inspire healthcare leaders to achieve zero preventable harm.
