Patient and Whaanau Centred Care - CM Health Report on Inpatient Experience

Patient and Whaanau Centred Care - CM Health Report on Inpatient Experience | Palliative care | Scoop.it

This month our inpatient experience survey will be looking at compassion, dignity, and respect.  Being treated with compassion, dignity, and respect are areas of care that matter most to our patients. Almost half (41 per cent) of our patients consider this dimension to be one of the areas of care that make the most difference to the overall
quality of their care and treatment.
So how are we doing?
