The overarching goal is to ensure that patients (and family/caregivers), working with providers, can incorporate what matters to them into decisions about their care. Using a three-phased approach, we will engage researchers, health care providers, decision makers and patient partners to answer this research question: "How do providers working with patients interpret and integrate data from patient-centered measurement assessments (experience and outcome tools) into routine clinical care?"

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.
