CFHI supports initiatives that engage patients and families in designing, delivering and evaluating health services, with the goal of improving the quality of care. Co-designing improvements with patients and families leads to new insights and better results than providers and leaders working on their own. By harnessing the tremendous potential of engagement to drive improvement, we help organizations understand and create the winning conditions to accelerate healthcare improvement.

Recognized as an international leader in patient and family engagement for our work spearheading the pan-Canadian Patient Engagement Projects, CFHI champions partnerships with patients and families for quality improvement. Our Partnering with Patients and Families for Quality Improvement Collaborative builds capacity and enhances organizational culture to partner with patients and families to improve quality across the continuum of care.



Our Patient Engagement Resource Hub includes over one hundred Canadian and international open source tools. Use them in patient and family engagement initiatives to improve health and healthcare. Also available in your mobile app store.
