Effectively implementing cross-cutting strategies can accelerate your improvement efforts. This includes the engagement of patients and their family members as active partners throughout the change process. Patients and families can and want to play a key role in building will, sharing ideas, and supporting patient safety and quality. Patient and Family Engagement (PFE) strategies will help your organization establish and sustain these vital partnerships and help educate staff on how to develop and sustain PFE in your improvement work.

The HRET HIIN Integrating PFE Strategies into your Harm Reduction Efforts resource identifies change ideas to help you embed PFE strategies into the work for each harm area. The examples in the resource are designed to help you improve harm performance and address the goals for each of the five PFE metrics.
