Did you know that October
is Patient-Centered Care Awareness Month
(PCCAM)? Now in its sixth year, PCCAM commemorates the progress that has been made toward making patient-centered care a reality. PCCAM is a global awareness-building campaign that occurs every October to commemorate the progress that has been made toward making patient-centered care a reality and to build momentum for further progress through education and collaboration.
This year’s theme is “Building Patient Confidence.” Hospitals and health care organizations around the world are encouraged to celebrate by empowering patients, strengthening their patient-centered practices and publicly proclaiming to their patients and communities their commitment to patient-centered care.
