Patient Centered Care

Network 8 encourages patient and family engagement by employing patient-centered care which is a model that entails ESRD providers partnering with beneficiaries and their families to identify and satisfy the full range of beneficiary needs and preferences. Patient-centered care includes the whole person and family, respects individual values and choices, and ensures continuity of care. Below are staff resources to promote patient- centered care at the facility level.
