Patients, Chosen Caregivers and/or Family Members
Team-based care puts those receiving care and experiencing the health care system at the heart of the care team. The team should include patients, chosen caregivers, family members and anyone else who is a part of a patient’s support system. These team members work closely with multiple health care providers from different backgrounds as equal partners in care.
The journey towards quality, team-based care involving both patients and providers as equal team members means sharing and accessing resources, events and opportunities to support everyone along the way.
