Patient and Family Enagamement Network Overview Video


[MUSIC PLAYING] Patients, families,
and caregivers play an essential
role in improving the quality of health care. Informed and engaged
patients can help guide their care and better the
overall health care system. The TMF Quality
Innovation Network wants to elevate the
voice of the patient, and invites Medicare
beneficiaries, their family members, and caregivers to
join the TMF patient and family engagement network. The PFE network is a
source for information you can use to improve
or maintain your health, as well as navigate
the health care system. You will have the opportunity to
learn about health care topics that you are interested in. You can participate when
it’s convenient for you and at your own pace. Topics include how to talk
with doctors and nurses to tell them what
matters most to you or the person you care
for; tips for taking better care of yourself if you
have diabetes, heart disease, or kidney disease,
including warning signs and when to call for
help; what you need to do when you or someone
you take care of leaves the hospital; medication safety
tips and ways to manage pain that do not include opioids;
common mental health conditions, including
depression and anxiety; improving care for
people in nursing homes. There is also the opportunity
to further your engagement and become a PFE advisor. We invite you to
share your ideas to help make health care better. We want to hear your voice, your
personal stories, and health care experiences. As a PFE advisor, you
will have the chance to work with our team to
share your ideas to make sure the thoughts,
wishes, and experiences of patients, their family
members, and caregivers are heard. We want to hear
your ideas on how to transform the design
and delivery of care to make it more
patient-centered. Sign up to participate by
visiting tmfnetworks.org. For questions,
