Rules of Engagement: Lessons from the PANORAMA Project

Rules of Engagement: Lessons from the PANORAMA Project Download Rules of Engagement: Lessons from PANORAMA

The PANORAMA Project was a ground-breaking patient engagement project, as well as an incredible learning opportunity for The Change Foundation. Over the course of two years, 31 panelists from across Ontario met to share their lived experiences and insights as patients and family caregivers on a range of issues related to improving people’s healthcare experience.

As a result, the Panel had a tremendous impact on the work of the Foundation, and more importantly, helped to inspire, educate, and galvanize an impressive group of patient and caregiver citizens.

However, PANORAMA also left its mark on The Change Foundation in other ways. Namely, the essential points to consider when starting or running a patient engagement initiative.

Rules of Engagement: Lessons from PANORAMA serves as an excellent resource for health providers and professionals, outlining key moments in the engagement process that require extra thought and preparation. These recommendations can help ensure that patient engagement initiatives deliver results for organizations, and also make participants feel valued and respected in the process.
