This presentation will provide insight on the approach to patient-centered care by nurse practitioners. It will also illustrate the role that NPs can play in our health care system, including a presentation by an NP-owned and operated clinic that provides primary health care to a diverse patient population across the lifespan.

TCPI Webinar

The Role of Leadership in Creating a Culture of Patient and Family- Centered Care  

Thursday, June 2nd
2:00-3:15 pm ET

Engaged and committed leadership has emerged as an essential element for driving the practice transformation outlined in the TCPI change package. But what does “engaged and committed leadership” look like day-to-day in the office? What leadership behaviors and actions facilitate the delivery of patient- and family-centered care? 
Hosted by Planetree, this webinar will address these questions and examine the critical role practice leaders play in:

•    Championing and orchestrating change,
•    Mentoring and developing staff; and
•    Recognizing and acting on the knowledge, insights and input from all staff – and patients and family members – in order to create a culture of continuous quality improvement.

*Immediately following the webinar, there will be an optional 15-minute Q&A session with the presenters. 

Sara Guastello, is the Director of Knowledge Management for Planetree. In this role, she draws on current research and observational field work in developing a range of educational and implementation resources to guide health care organizations in their endeavors to deliver patient-centered care. Much of her work concentrates on the quality of human interactions that occur within health care settings, the importance of connecting health care personnel to the purpose and meaning of their work, and practical strategies for recasting patients and family members as true partners in care. 

Dael Waxman, M.D. is the Interim Chair of the Department of Family Medicine at Carolinas HealthCare System in Charlotte, NC.
