New NCIOM Task Force on Patient and Family Engagement

‘The North Carolina Institute of Medicine (NCIOM) is a quasi-state agency charged with studying important health issues facing the state and developing workable solutions to those issues. The NCIOM has received grant support from The Duke Endowment to create a task force on patient and family engagement.  This work is being conducted in collaboration with Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC), North Carolina Division of Public Health (DPH), the North Carolina Quality Center (NCQC) of the North Carolina Hospital Association, North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS), and the Foundation for Nursing Excellence (FFNE).  The goal of the task force is to identify evidence-based or evidence-informed strategies that will help increase patient and family engagement in health care decision making, support healthy lifestyle changes, and improve medication adherence.  The task force will also examine strategies to involve patients and families in hospital and health system change.’
