2015/11-2016/10 Patient engagement in primary care practice: Form, function and outcome - R Malouin
Abstract: Primary care practices are transforming across the United States to a new care model, the patient-centered medical home (PCMH). As part of this new model, practices are challenged to involve patients and families in improving practice structures and processes. Through a survey of primary care practices within the Great Lakes Research into Practice Network, modes, functions and outcomes of patient and family engagement will be investigated. Results will be utilized to identify resources to assist practices in further patient- and family engagement, and to generate a dialogue around patient and family engagement in the national practice-based research network group.
