    Planetree Partners with National Academy of Medicine to Develop Framework that Highlights Patient and Family Engagement as Driver of Better Culture, Better Care, Better Health and Lower Costs
    Informed by pioneering culture change work of Planetree affiliates and an advisory panel of health services research scientists and patient advocates, and co-authored by Planetree’s President, Susan Frampton, PhD (@SusanBFrampton) and Director of Knowledge Management, Sara Guastello (@PlanetreeSara), the paper introduces a logical framework to guide implementation efforts, an annotated bibliography of the latest scientific research in support of PFEC and plenty of real-life examples to bring PFEC to life.
    Download the Paper and Learn More – 3 Opportunities for Planetree Members to Engage
    1. We invite you to be among the first to access the paper, http://planetree.org/designation-2/
    2. We think once you read it, you’ll be very eager to hear more, which is why author and Planetree President, Susan Frampton, PhD, has recorded a 20-minute webinar to better familiarize you with the framework and supporting evidence. The webinar recording is available to all Planetree members via the Resource Library on this site.
    3. Planetree Coordinators and Points of Contact will have another opportunity to network directly with Susan on February 1, 2017 at 12:00 pm EST. Join Susan for an interactive discussion on ways to apply the framework within your organizations and guidance on using the evidence base to increase receptivity to change. Register for this meeting in your Planetree Coordinator community on My Planetree to receive the login instructions to attend this meeting.
    We’re also eager to hear what you think and how you will use the framework. Follow and tweet @Planetree to let us know!
