Patient-Provider Communication (PPC)
This is a national and international effort to promote information sharing, cooperation and collaboration among individuals who are committed to seeking improvements in patient-provider communication across the entire health care continuum–from a doctor’s office, emergency room, clinic, ICU, acute care and rehabilitation hospital, home health service and hospice. Members bring together a range of perspectives and experiences in the area of patient-provider communication. The group works to share knowledge and resources and to raise awareness at both the practice and policy levels of need to overcome existing communication barriers and to increase communication access across health care settings. The patient-provider communication forum seeks to achieve share learning about patient-provider communication.
