23 Lessons Along the Way Changing culture takes time and is hard work. Nursing and Nurses can play a pivotal role in changing culture. We continue to better understand the true definition of patient- and family-centered care/Patient engagement. It is critical to tie metrics to evaluate the impact of process changes on patient outcomes. New processes require ongoing reinforcement, refining and periodic measurement to validate effectiveness. Leaders, staff and physicians require ongoing education, updating and review of Care Transformation concepts. Continuously bring in new PFAs with fresh perspectives and ideas. 23
