Patients and Professionals Partner to Redesign Inpatient Care Systems

Providing patients with improved care serves patients, families, and the morale and efficiency of care units


This project built on the Transforming Care at Bedside (TCAB) project and identified two key tasks: to understand care through the eyes of the patient, and to use this to redesign care that is patient centered. Project designers engaged stakeholders at a variety of levels ranging from Senior leaders and funders, to clinical and non-clinical departments.

Grant Outputs

Patient Engagement: Putting Patients at the Centre of Care –

This project increased work efficiency, improved communication, and enriched teamwork and morale. Surveys conducted with patients discharged from the pilot-test units show they believed the staff were genuinely trying to listen and understand, and that interaction between patients and staff has been improved significantly.
