Health care providers, payers and systems serving children, youth and families increasingly focus on family engagement as a strategy to improve health care delivery, enhance consumer and provider satisfaction, and reduce costs. Assessing how well an organization or agency is engaging families is a critical step in achieving these goals. A recent issue brief from Family Voices, A Framework for Assessing Family Engagement in Systems Change, proposes four domains of family engagement – representation, transparency, impact and commitment. We explore this framework, share models of success and discuss common barriers to incorporating meaningful family engagement in systems-level initiatives. We suggest attendees read the issue brief prior to the event. Audience Q&A is highly encouraged. Register here.
