The Family Engagement Initiative aims to build support among hospital teams for family engagement in ILPQC’s quality improvement initiatives and provide tools for the recruitment, training, and engagement of patients as valued and active members of quality improvement teams.
For example, the Golden Hour Initiative toolkit addresses approaches to engaging family during delivery and NICU admission. The work group focused on the family engagement aspects of the toolkit will include at least one family member. In addition, hospital teams may designate a family advisor and will be encouraged to bring a family advisor to the Golden Hour Initiative kick-off meeting in April.
