    Join us for the next PFCC.Connect Informal Conversation: Planning and Facilitating Effective Meetings: Creating Inclusive, Trustworthy Spaces, which will be held on September 29th at 12pm ET

    Planning and facilitating meetings that create inclusive, trustworthy spaces – whether virtual or in-person – is an important part of developing an inclusive organizational culture. Join us to discuss how to foster effective meetings where everyone has a voice, feels empowered, and has a sense of belonging.

We do not do a formal presentation but rather let the conversation be guided by what participants want to learn through sharing our collective experiences. Pam Dardess, Vice President for Strategic Operations, and Ushma Patel, Director for Special Projects & Educational Programs will facilitate the discussion.

    PFCC.Connect Informal Conversation: Improving Organizational Websites to Support Partnerships with Patients and Families

    May 26, 2022

    12 pm ET

    Websites are the public “faces” of hospitals and health systems but often they do not communicate messages that are patient- and family-centered nor are they “user-friendly.”

     

    Please join us for this Informal Conversation to share ideas about (1) re-designing websites that communicate the messages you want, (2) involving patients and families in that process, and (3) collaborating effectively with your organization’s Marketing/Communications Department.
