-14:00-16:00: Forming a Patient and Family Advisory Council 

Have you considered bringing the patient to the decision table? It’s the time to do so!

Patient and family advisors play a valuable role in improving the safety and quality of health care and reducing medical errors. Integrating patient advisory groups within the healthcare model is a promising step to achieve ongoing patient engagement, enhance performance improvement initiatives, and address patient experience.
This workshop gives you the chance to learn about the importance of this group, the best practices on how to form it, as well as gain insight on the models followed by Bellevue Medical Center and American University of Beirut Medical Center.
The workshop provides an opportunity to reflect the theory into your own practice by going through an exercise of implementing a PFAC in your own hospital setting.

– 9:00-11:00: Experiential Learning Sessions: How to Make Your Staff Members Put Themselves into the Shoes of Patients and their Families

One of the essential elements of having a Person-Centered Environment is changing the culture in healthcare organizations. While it is challenging for most healthcare organizations to change culture, there are certain practices that ignite this evolution. Exposing your staff members to experiential learning sessions where they find the opportunity to put themselves into patients and their families’ shoes and create a big “aha moment” for the staff members and light the candle of person-centered care among them.

In this workshop participants will learn:

· How to plan experiential learning sessions

· How to conduct experiential sessions and potential pitfalls during the program

· How to measure the impact of experiential sessions on staff members

· Be exposed to one or two experiential learning experiences to better understand the concept
