PATIENT & STAFF EXPERIENCE
Understanding and improving patients’ experience of care is a key component in delivering high quality needs based services. By looking at various aspects of patient experience, the extent to which patients are receiving care that is respectful of, and responsive to, their individual preferences, needs and values can be assessed. Quality Improvement focuses on two parallel aspects of care: care processes (the way care is organised) and staff interactions with patients and their families (human relations). Thus a shared vision for ideal patient service is developed, with consequent improvement in patient and staff experience.
This section contains a selection of resources to help you collect, use patient experience data and consider health literacy when you are making improvements to the care you deliver.
