How can the AIPFCC help you?

The Australian Institute for Patient & Family Centred Care brings patients, families and healthcare professionals to the table together, to transform people’s experience of healthcare.

We aim to achieve this through a three-fold approach:

  1. Develop partnerships between patients, their families and health professionals
  2. Create a culture that is both supportive and effective
  3. Improve healthcare environments through high-quality integrated art, architecture and design.

The Australian Institute for Patient & Family Centred Care is part of a patient and family centred care movement which is sweeping the globe and changing the way healthcare is viewed by patients, families and healthcare professionals.

"Hear Me" by Alan Hopgood - Bookings

“Hear Me” is a 40 minute HealthPlay written by playwright Alan Hopgood in collaboration with the Australian Institute for Patient and Family Centred Care.  The play focuses on the importance of patient and family involvement and empowerment as partners in their own health care.

Why should you present a performance of “Hear Me”?  There is enormous potential for improving the quality and safety of healthcare by encouraging communication and partnerships between patients, families and health professionals and fostering an employee empowerment culture. The “Hear Me” play can have a significant and novel role in the education of patients, families and staff.
