Patient- and family-centered care is a priority for us here at AAMC–and people are taking notice.

Recently, Picker Institute, an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to improving patient-centered care, announced that it had awarded a matching grant to AAMC. The grant is being administered under Picker Institute’s Always Events /Always Experiences initiative, and is one of only 20 awarded to institutions around the country.

Always Events /Always Experiences  refers to those aspects of the patient and family experience that should always occur during interaction with healthcare professionals and/or the healthcare delivery system. The grant program provides matching funds in support of innovative approaches to creating specific Always Events  that achieve measurable improvements in patient- and family-centered care.
