Why Patient- and Family-Centered Care?

Family Physicians Support Patient-Centered Medical Home Model of Care

A patient-centered medical home is a more effective and efficient model of health care delivery, providing ongoing, comprehensive patient care while delivering better health outcomes and lower costs.

Patient- and Family-Centered Care: Why it Matters and How to Practice It

When Steven Bergeson became a doctor, he found that patients sometimes mentioned their most pressing concerns only at the very end of their appointments. So he tried a new approach: he asked "What else?" over and over at the start of each visit, so patients could list all their concerns and he could help prioritize them. In this video, Bergeson suggests similar tips to help you listen carefully to your patients in the span of a short office visit. He also explains that while patient-centered care may take a little extra time, it's likely to result in better outcomes for the patient and a more rewarding career for you.

Bedside Report - As The Shift Changes....(FINAL)

Educational/Training video (Final version) for health care workers at the UCSD Medical Center, La Jolla, CA. Effective communication is particularly important in the transfer of patient care from one nurse to another during shift changes. The purpose of these briefings are to keep members of clinical unit informed, anticipate needs, and make appropriate plans. Conducting nurse-to-nurse shift report at the bedside, in the presence of the patient puts the patient central to all care activity information. It allows the outgoing nurse to introduce the incoming nurse to the patient, thus creating an explicit transfer of responsibility. It provides the incoming nurse the opportunity to actively ask questions and visually inspect the patient, while checking identification bands and treatment modalities (for example, intravenous fluids) with the outgoing nurse. Bedside reports also provide the opportunity to reassess the patient's plan of care and goals from the prior period and update the goals as needed.
