Patient Centered Care / Patient Engagement

Patient Voice

Placing patients as passive recipients of care and information is shifting to one where patients are seen as partners and collaborators. This is not only enhancing the patient experience and the care they receive, but in how evidence is generated. Collaboration between patient, research, and clinician communities to improve the quality of healthcare delivery and research will improve health outcomes as well as the overall quality of healthcare delivery. APB’s Patient Voices share their personal experiences navigating the current health system, providing compelling cases for what patients need from the future and ways those changes can be enacted for the benefit of all.
