Patient Engagement Program - Breast Cancer awareness session by Dr. Jain
As part of the patient engagement component of the Quality Improvement Strategy, activities for patients are planned to be carried out by the ADK Hospital. The activities will be in the form of presentations on important and common illnesses, with a focus on how patients can contribute to preventing and managing their illnesses. The presentations will offer an opportunity to disseminate information to patients, and for patients to clarify questions regarding their condition.
The Hospital aims to conduct a patient engagement session throughout the year. The first patient engagement session is planned for February for which date, time and venue will be informed to patients and general public who register for the sessions. These sessions are conducted completely free of charge.
The first PEP was held on March 8, 2013 on breast cancer. The feedback from participants were very positive. Most of the participants indicated that the session has increased their knowledge and was very helpful in clarifying doubts. The next PEP will also take place this month with a topic of Child Feeding Practices.
