A Guide to Authentic Patient Engagement

Posted • Last updated

Learn about the meaningful and authentic engagement of patients, family members and caregivers in health care decisions to improve the quality of care for all.

Our Guide to Authentic Patient Engagement contains a number of resources to support your team wherever you are on your patient engagement journey.

We’ve refreshed our previous guide to include new sections on diversity, equity and inclusion, Indigenous cultural safety and humility, what’s important to know when working together and the six steps to engagement. The guide is also now interactive and easier to navigate – explore it below.
