Patient partnering is an important part of a high-functioning, quality health system. Patient partnering means patients, their caregivers and families, and health care providers actively collaborating to improve Ontario’s health system.
Building on leading research and consultations with people from across the province, Health Quality Ontario has developed a new framework for patient partnering.
Use the framework to better understand the meaning and key principles for patient partnering, and the practices you can use to do it.
The framework also explains:
The different levels of care that partnering can take place at—at the direct care level, organizational level and provincial level
The types of partnering practices and models to use at each level
Key considerations before, during and after a patient partnering project or activity
