Society for General Internal Medicine (SGIM) Conference Planning Project


Funded by Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), Family Voices is participating in two cycles of planning for two SGIM (Society of General Internal Medicine) international conferences on strategies to improve partnerships between providers and patients and patient roles in patient centered outcomes research. Topics include learning about healthcare systems, the role of the patient advocate, creating a sense of safety for patients engaged in research, validation, and accommodation for patients with special healthcare needs, and listening and learning from patients.  Learn more in the SGIM Forum 2015 Annual Meeting Update.
