The People We Serve and Their Families: Our Most Important Partners

In June 2018, teams from Providence headed to Baltimore to present at the 8th annual International Conference on Patient and Family-Centered Care, which focused on promoting equity and reducing disparities in health care.

Kate McNamee, practice consultant, Care Experience, and Neil Fowler, team leader, Indigenous Health & Wellness, presented on Providence’s journey to Indigenous, culturally competent care. Aggie Black, director, Health Services & Clinical Research and Knowledge Translation, and Christine Wallsworth, a patient-family partner, shared how to engage patients and families in research.

Something said at the conference resonated with Aggie: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
