Patient- and Family-Centered Care Toolkit

Patient and family partnership in care is an essential component of high quality healthcare. ACP has identified principles that reflect the preferences and needs of patients for experiencing satisfying healthcare and created a toolkit giving practical, actionable advice to help physicians implement these principles in their practice.

  1. Patients and families should be treated with dignity and respect.
  2. Patients and families should be active partners in all aspects of their care.
  3. Patients and families should contribute to the development and improvement of health care systems.
  4. Patients and families should be partners in the education of healthcare professionals.
