9 And he climbed with the lad up the Eiffelberg Tower.
“This,” cried the Mayor, “is your town’s darkest hour! The time for all Whos who have blood that is red To come to the aid of their country!” he said. “We’ve GOT to make noises in greater amounts! So, open your mouth, lad! For every voice counts!” Thus he spoke as he climbed. When they got to the top, The lad cleared his throat and he shouted out, “YOPP!” And that Yopp… That one small, extra Yopp put it over! Finally, at last! From that speck on that clover Their voices were heard! They rang out clear and clean. And the elephant smiled. “Do you see what I mean? ... They’ve proved they ARE persons, no matter how small.

10 Strategy Map How can diversity and inclusion help us achieve our objectives?

11 People and Culture- Key Component of Strategic Plan
Enhancing Standard HR duties — benefits, hiring, payroll New- Implement Business Partners: who understand the specific HR challenges that their clients face to learn time-tested tactics for fostering employee engagement to be able to help managers structure incentives that drive peak performance Talent management software to function with existing HRMS system Boost Evaluation Process and Tools

12 The healing power of touch
Compassion – We need to show we care Attentiveness – We need to pay attention to show we care

13 My personal experiences:
as a leader, a care provider and a patient

14 Patient and Family Centered Care (PFCC)
A set of principles and values that when implemented successfully improve quality, safety, and long-term outcome. In addition, data shows improvement in patient, family, care provider, and staff satisfaction.

15 Communication, Compassion and Attentiveness are Critical
Transforming a culture Patients and families are repeatedly telling us we need to do better in these areas: Response to your concerns/complaints Staff addressed your emotional needs Staff included you in decisions regarding treatment Nurses and Physicians kept you informed Staff worked together to care for you Time physician spent with you (Taken from the Press Ganey Priority Index) Communication, Compassion and Attentiveness are Critical

16 URMC components of PFCC
Safety Courage Patient and Family- Centered Care Quality Caring

17 Creating value enhances PFCC
Create Value (Quality/Cost) by implementing LEAN process improvement strategy Eliminate waste in our system without diminishing the patient experience remove extra steps in patient flow simplify operational processes eradicate duplicate and unnecessary paperwork results in better patient and staff satisfaction Utilize LEAN approach to help create a patient and family-centered care culture

18 Building a PFCC Culture
Areas of Focus: Facility Medical Advances Information Technology Delivery of Care People

19 Facility PFCC requires a comfortable supportive environment
private rooms with family sleeping spaces atmosphere that promotes healing Cancer Center Expansion New Children’s Hospital Upgrade of Current Facilities

20 Information Technology
eRecord will promote PFCC provides immediate and more thorough understanding provides improved communication among providers can identify high-risk patients to ensure comprehensive care plan and enhanced communication can encourage attentiveness and compassion i.e. electronic sticky notes can enhance patient and provider’s bond by reminding care providers to engage in topics most important to patient “I am very sorry to know that you recently lost a loved one” “I understand you are anxious to return home to care for your cat”

21 Transforming the way we Deliver Care
encourage patient/ family involvement promote practices to improve patient/family and provider communication (i.e. rounding and shift change at the bedside) breakdown silos – enhance communication among providers and multidisciplinary care teams develop specialized Hospitalists to promote efficient, but compassionate care shift from episodic approach to care to full continuum of care advanced medical homes

22 People are the most important part of PFCC
Train all medical staff and employees to be respectful and offer compassion How we communicate determines how effectively we convey compassion and attentiveness We need to convey to our patients compassion and attentiveness by communicating about things that matter to them The healing power of touch

23 Caring for the caregivers
Our employees need to feel cared for to provide patient/family-centered care Staff need to be: treated with respect supported empowered recognized
