The Second Annual Partnering with Patients Conference

“Patient-Provider Collaboration: Making Patient-Centered Care a Reality”

As the health care system changes and patients are required to take a more active role in their care, we have a need to enhance patient-provider collaboration to achieve quality patient-centered care and improve patient health outcomes.

The conference objectives are:

  • Describe the impact of effective patient-provider collaboration in population health
  • Recognize a variety of approaches to patient-centered care being used at Johns Hopkins, including patient engagement training, teach back, language of caring, patient and family advisory councils and shared decision making that can be implemented in practice
  • Explore the patient perspective on effective ways to collaborate with patients
  • Describe patient, caregiver, clinician and health systems perspectives on measuring quality of care
  • Discuss patient engagement and patient-centered approaches to increase awareness and identify collaboration opportunities with clinicians and patients

We are calling for submissions for oral presentations and poster presentations that speak to these objectives. If interested in submitting a presentation, please click here.

When: Friday, June 23, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Where: Turner Auditorium at the Johns Hopkins Hospital

Registration will open soon. For more information, please contact nschech1@jhmi.edu.
