Understanding and improving patients experience of care is a key component to delivering high quality services that are based in their needs. By looking at various aspects of patient experience, we can assess the extent to which patients are receiving care that is respectful of and responsive to individual patient preferences, needs and values. Quality Improvement focuses on two parallel aspects of care: care processes (the way carer is organised) and staff interactions with patients and their families (human relations) developing a shared vision for ideal patient service and working through improvements as patients engagement increases, staff experience and morale also improves.
