Patient and Family Engagement
Partners in Quality Improvement
We aspire to make healthcare in our region the best in the nation. To do so, we need your help! We want to assist you in becoming more confident about making healthcare decisions and participating more fully in your care. We are hosting the Great Plains Learning and Action Network as a way to share information, learn from one another and offer education and resources. Visit our Calendar of Events for opportunities to learn and grow.
We are also working with communities and healthcare providers to ensure care is equitable. Providing equitable care means considering a person’s circumstances, culture, and beliefs so services can be delivered to allow people to achieve optimal health. If all aspects of a person’s life are not considered amidst their overall health, they may experience health disparities resulting in worse outcomes and thus a poorer quality of life. Visit our Health Equity page to learn more.

Check out our newest episodes on antibiotic use, self-measured blood pressure monitoring, opioids, adverse drug events and chronic kidney disease.
