ACR Launches Free Online Resource for Patient- and Family-Centered Care

May 24, 2017 — The new American College of Radiology (ACR) Radiologist’s Toolkit for Patient- and Family-Centered Care offers online practice-specific resources to help radiologists enhance patient engagement skills and offer more patient-centered care.

“This free toolkit will help radiologists in various practice settings engage patients and families as healthcare partners and forge closer relationships with communities while advancing value-based patient care,” said James V. Rawson, M.D., FACR, chair of the ACR Commission on Patient- and Family Centered Care. “This resource will help radiologists share best ideas on patient-centered care; learn from experiences of colleagues; and access a searchable library of tools, resources, articles and videos,” he added.

Created by members of the commission, the toolkit is the result of collaboration with patients, radiologists and related professionals. Launched during ACR 2017 — The Crossroads of Radiology, it contains specific tools for imaging professionals in various practice settings, including U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), general and children’s hospitals, academic institutions and private practice settings.
