ISQua Webinar January 24, 2013 Barbara Farlow, Honorary Patient Perspective Board member Let us in! Engaging and Empowering Patient for Better Outcomes
Global Health Policy Summit 2012 Emerging theme… Patients must come off the sidelines and onto the pitch. 2
Why engage and empower patients? Engaged and empowered patients experience a safer, higher quality healthcare experience. Fiscal pressure on system is increasing (costs, demand incr.) and payments often tied to safety and quality (patients are a free resource!) Harm rates unacceptable. Unexplored, promising opportunities. Patient cares the most, knows his/her patient journey better than anyone and is an expert who must be on the team. 3
Barriers to Engagement Attitudes of providers. Let us in!! Lack of awareness of safety risks. (willing when aware- eg. blood transfusion safety) Belief that contributions not valued Lack of medical knowledge and confidence. Fear of showing disrespect- impact on care. Knowledge on how to participate. 4
Tools and Ways to Engage and Empower WHO- Patient Safety Champions. Led by Margaret Murphy, “we are the grit in the oyster that produces the pearl.” 254 champions in 52 countries Tell stories, sit on committees, impact policy, affect change 5
Patients for Patient Safety Workshops
Tools and Ways to Engage and Empower Patient and Family Advisory Councils. Valuable resource for hospital Training offered by many organizations including patient-run organizations Webinars allow for support and training everywhere 7

Engagement and Empowerment in Action! With appreciation for the courage of providers who partnered with us. 13
