AimOur Home Health Monitoring (HHM) projects engage clients and their families to support patients’ quality of life by educating patients and caregivers about chronic conditions and symptoms, and giving patients the freedom to self-manage their condition(s) from their homes and away from traditional hospital settings. We recently created five surveys: three for patients with chronic disease (e.g. heart disease, COPD, multi-morbidity), one for caregivers and one for care providers to assess their experience and satisfaction with the HHM program during and after completion. We would like to involve patient partners to review our surveys and give us their feedback on the appropriateness of the survey questions.
