New journal on patient engagement in hospitals

Wednesday, 22 October 2014

Over the past few months, we have been working with the International Hospital Federation to create a special edition of, 'World Hospitals and Health Services: The Official Journal of the International Hospital Federation'. 

The journal features eight examples of patient engagement in hospitals across the globe, featuring case studies from four IAPO members.

  • Australia – Consumers Health Forum of Australia: Enabling health service consumers to have an active role throughout the health system

  • Hong Kong (Special Administrative Region of China)  – The Hong Kong Alliance of Patients’ Organizations: Working constructively to increase hospital openness and accountability 

  • South Africa – The South African Depression and Anxiety Group and government hospital partners: Addressing the challenge of poor adherence in psychiatry

  • United States– The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society: Working with patients, carers and hospital professionals to improve awareness, treatment and patient choice
