Because your voice matters.

Health Care Partner Resources

We’ve created a number of resources, tools and supports to help you engage patients in a meaningful way. Depending on what you’re looking for, this section provides supports for:

  • Assessing readiness: materials that help your team get ready to engage patients
  • Skill building: resources that build your skills, confidence and comfort in engaging patient partners
  • Preparation: recruitment, preparation and selection strategy resources for engaging patients well
  • Evaluation: providing support and resources to assess the impact of your engagement efforts and share them with others

All resources are created with input from patient and/or health care partners.

Seeking the patient perspective doesn’t have to be complicated; it simply entails a commitment to ask and listen. Patient advisors not only bring a valuable perspective but also share original ideas and unique skills. Including the patient and family perspective changes the conversation and aligns the team’s focus towards common goals.
