Patient- and Family-Centered Care Organizational Self-Assessment Tool


This self-assessment tool, developed by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) in conjunction with the National Initiative for Children's Healthcare Quality (NICHQ), allows organizations to understand the range and breadth of elements under patient- and family-centered care and to assess where they are against the leading edge of practice.

The tool can help providers assess their ability to integrate patients and family members into the care process in ways that help them collaborate in their own care.
