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:
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.
AIPFCC in partnership with the Centre for Health Communication at UTS engaged renowned playwrite, Alan Hopgood to write a play to engage people with the tricky issues that occur as part of incident disclosure. The play touches on the complex issues that arise when things go wrong in health care.
"Hear Me" premiered in Sydney on October 4th 2012 at the 1st International Incident Disclosure Conference to much acclaim and subsequent discussion. Since then this play has been performed in many Health Care facilities throughout Australia. Across facilities 95% of attendees felt the issues raised in the play were relevant to their health service. See the latest newsletter.
On October 31st, the Hobart Mercury published this article about the play.
