The IPFCC Partnership Award recognizes innovative partnerships among patients, families, and health care professionals. IPFCC initiated the award in 2017 after 25 years of providing leadership to advance the practice of patient- and family-centered care and ensure that partnerships are at the heart of the health care system. The award recognizes teams of health care professionals and patients/families who, through their collaboration, truly are changing health care.
“For 29 years, our organization has been advocating that partnerships with patients and families are at the heart of the health care system. It’s wonderful to see that these four health systems and many others truly understand the importance of partnership—and are effectively using it, especially now, to guide both policy and practice,” said Bev Johnson, President and CEO, at IPFCC’s 9th International Conference on Patient- and Family-Centered Care: Partnerships for Quality, Safety, and Equity. Congratulations to our 2020 IPFCC Partnership Award recipients!
