Health Care Leaders Focus on Patient-Centered Care
Date:10/1/2009

n, president of Planetree. "Patient-centered care is fundamental to that aim. During Patient-Centered Care Awareness Month, we challenge healthcare providers and consumers alike to consider ways to more effectively invite patients' participation in their own care and to strengthen the partnerships that develop between patients, caregivers and family members."

Patient-Centered Care Awareness Month is sponsored and coordinated by Planetree, Inc., a not-for-profit organization based in Derby, Connecticut, partnering with health care organizations to advance innovative models of health care that focus on healing and nurturing body, mind and spirit. Many patient-centered hospitals across the U.S. as well as the Society for Healthcare Consumer Advocacy are planning events to increase awareness about their initiatives to improve the patient experience and encourage other organizations to do the same.

Several activities are planned to increase awareness about the patient-centered model of care, empower patients and inspire health care organizations to further advance and expand the practice. Highlights of the month's activities include:

  • Governors from across the U.S. are commemorating the event by signing proclamations recognizing Patient-Centered Care Awareness Month in their state.
  • In partnership with the Picker Institute, Planetree has launched the Web site, www.patient-centeredcare.org showcasing the Patient-Centered Care Improvement Guide that provides a self-assessment and valuable, easy-to-follow strategies and tools to implement patient-centered approaches.
  • The recognition of individual health care professionals for their personal embodiment of the values of patient-centered care at the annual Spirit of Planetree Awards Dinner on October 7 concluding the 2009 Planetree Annual Conference.
  • Hospitals nationwide are displaying proclamations t
