Wed. Dec. 6th at 12 noon EST, Nick Bansback and Logan Trenaman of the University of British Columbia will be talking about a new effort being made in Canada to involve patients in their own healthcare, and to help improve their experiences with care. Part of this effort means asking patients about their experiences in the hospital. Some important types of questions involve asking the patients what was most important to them in the hospital and some good or bad experiences they had there. To ask these types of questions, researchers are using a questionnaire called the Canadian Patient Experience Survey. The survey covers 48 different aspects about hospital care. Researchers think some aspects will matter a lot to some patients, while others will be less important to other patients. This study focused on elderly Canadians, and helped healthcare administrators understand which parts of hospital care experiences are most and least important to patients. Register here.
