Developed by the American Institute of Research (AIR) in partnership with IPRO HQIC
This resource provides hospital leaders and staff with practical, step-by-step guidance to successfully implement the 5 PFE Best Practices in the CMS-funded Hospital Quality Improvement Contract (HQIC) program. Each guide walks the user through the definition of the PFE Practice, the intent of the Practice, the benefits of partnering with patients and families to increase safety in the hospital setting, concrete examples from the field, and a list of resources to support implementation. These guides are meant to be a supplement to the Hospital Roadmap for Person and Family Engagement.
