Webinar provides unique platform for healthcare leaders to learn best practices from families
SAN JOSE, Calif., June 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vocera Communications, Inc. (NYSE:VCRA), the leading healthcare communications company, invites industry leaders to experience the U.S. healthcare system through the eyes of the family during a unique webinar on Thursday, June 9, from 1-2 p.m. EDT. Vocera’s Experience Innovation Network, focused on thought leadership and research, is hosting the event to provide a platform for hospital leaders to hear firsthand from family members about ways to improve engagement in supporting patient experience. The webinar, titled “Family Involvement in the Care Process,” will feature three family members as co-presenters who will share their healthcare experiences and provide insights into best practices.
Webinar participants will hear personal stories from a mother caring for her child with cystic fibrosis, a wife managing the care plan for her husband who has a brain tumor, and a daughter helping provide care for her mother-in-law whose mental and physical health is deteriorating. These family members will offer valuable perspectives to assist healthcare providers redefine traditional approaches to communicating with family members and involving loved ones in supporting patient care.
“Family members can be allies and advocates for patient care, providing support to their loved ones and extending the capabilities of the care team – but only if they are actively involved in the care process,” said Liz Boehm, director of the Experience Innovation Network and webinar moderator. “Too often family members are overlooked as valuable partners in care. Yet, when family members are empowered with the right resources, support and information, they can actually help improve patient understanding of the care plan and compliance.”
