“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

 

-Margaret Mead

In our complex and changing health care system, we can be more equitable and successful when health care workers and health care consumers work closely together in partnership. This summit will describe ways to develop and utilize communication strategies to deepen relationships that can improve health outcomes

The summit will take place in the Predolin Humanities Center on the Edgewood College campus. Campus Map

Advanced registration is encouraged and food will be provided. The Second Annual Innovation in Healthcare Summit is co-hosted by Edgewood College and Group Health Cooperative of South Central Wisconsin as part of the $1,000,000 gift to Edgewood College to engage and enlist Edgewood nursing students and graduates in innovative and progressive care delivery.

Program

8:30 – 9:00 Check in and brunch: Predolin 115

9:00-10:00 Keynote Speech: Anderson Auditorium 

"Be the Change: Patients & Health Care Professionals Working Together" 

Speaker: Meg Gaines, founder and director of the Center for Patient Partnerships

10:15-11:15 Breakout Session 1 (Sessions will be offered twice to give attendees the opportunity to attend both)

"Chronic Pain and Compassion Fatigue:  A Patient and Provider Discussion Panel" Presenters: Rebecca Zambrano (facilitator), Katie Selle, Dan Eagle, and Dr. Jerome Ebert PRD 306

The Institute of Medicine noted in a recent report that 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. This number is higher than the number of Americans with diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. The report suggests that the nation needs a “cultural transformation” to improve prevention, assessment and treatment of chronic pain. Chronic pain can be difficult to treat, and its causes are often elusive. This can lead both patients and providers into frustration and conflict.  Both patients and providers may feel increasingly misunderstood or misjudged by one another. Join us in a storytelling panel to discuss how we might re-open hearts and minds when compassion fatigue and despair begin to challenge the patient-provider partnership that is essential to healing and coping with chronic pain.

OR:

"Health Equity: Moving from Vision to Reality"

Presenter: Armando Hernandez PRD 308

This interactive presentation will discuss the health equity framework used by Group Health Cooperative to pursuit its vision of Health Equity. It will consider the role that patient experience, health literacy, and cultural competence play in these efforts. Common barriers and the process of engaging your organization in a health equity initiative will be considered. Participants will be encouraged to develop their own personal or organizations health equity goals.

11:15 -11:45 Break: PRD 302 Attendees will have the opportunity to come together as a group to dialogue about the presentations and sessions of the day. Refreshments will be provided. 

11:50 – 12:50 Breakout Session 2 (Sessions will be offered twice to give attendees the opportunity to attend both)

Meg Gaines, J.D., LLM

Director and Founder of the Center for Patient Partnerships 

Meg Gaines founded and directs the interdisciplinary Center for Patient Partnerships at the University of Wisconsin. The Center’s mission is to engender effective partnerships among people seeking health care, people providing health care, and people making policies that guide the health care system. The Center trains future professionals of medicine, nursing, law, health systems, industrial engineering, pharmacy and other disciplines together to provide advocacy services to patients with life-threatening and serious chronic illnesses in a transdisciplinary environment.

Ms. Gaines’ work focuses on consumer engagement and empowerment in health care reform where she has been privileged to collaborate with the Josiah Macy Jr Foundation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Kaiser Family Foundation, and the National Cancer Institute among others.  She serves on the National Cancer Research Advocates of the NCI, recently co-chaired the Josiah Macy Jr Foundation annual conference on engaging patients in linking health care and health professional education reform, and co-authored the conference paper for the joint Arnold P. Gold & Schwartz Foundations conference on advancing compassionate, collaborative care.  Her publications include “Engaging Patients at the Front Lines of Primary Care Redesign: Operational Lessons for an Effective Program,” “Alchemy: Medical Mediation at Its Best,” “A Social Compact For Advancing Team-Based High-Value Health Care,” and “Medical Professionalism from the Patient’s Perspective: Is There an Advocate in the House?”
