BWH will sponsor and host the Institute for Patient- and Family-Centered Care Conference at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Cambridge, Mass., from Nov. 3 to 6. This bi-annual seminar is dedicated to comprehensive, practical sessions to help administrative leaders, board members, physicians, nurses, professional and support staff, patients and families collaborate effectively to advance the practice of patient- and family-centered care. Among a robust agenda of objectives, the focus will be on identifying strategies to change the concept of families as “visitors” and how to support family presence and participation. Sixty attendees will have the opportunity to tour BWH on the afternoon of Nov. 4, as well as visit the Emergency Department, Shapiro Cardiovascular Center, Center for Patients and Families, Kessler Library for Patients and Families and the Neil and Elise Wallace STRATUS Center for Medical Simulation.
