Posted By: Sarah Roberts | Posted On: September 28, 2016

The NCQC PFE Team is thrilled to invite you to the October 27 PFE Coordinator Webinar featuring Special Guest Speaker Dr. Judith Hibbard.

Looking at North Carolina Health Systems and Hospitals as a whole, we have made remarkable progress with Patient and Family Engagement (PFE). In particular, we have a striking number of Patient and Family Advisor Programs across our state. We should be so proud of being leaders in this work!

As we look down the road, we are seeing powerful data to show that PFE work is highly impacted by the level of knowledge, skills and confidence our patients an families possess. This is called “Patient Activation.”

The concepts of Patient Activation were developed by Dr. Hibbard along with the Patient Activation Measure (PAM). We are so honored and excited that Dr. Judy Hibbard is joining our Special Speaker’s Series to help all of us in North Carolina think about how Patient Activation may give us missing pieces our PFE puzzle.

For those who want to learn more about Patient Activation and its impact, please take a look at this article.
