Patient Partnerships

UHN is committed to being engaged, collaborative and responsive to what matters most to patients. Engaging with patients and family caregivers as partners is key to our success.

We engage patient and family caregivers directly in their care, by sharing information and partnering with them at the level they choose with dignity, respect and compassion. See UHN's Patient Declaration of Values here.

UHN has developed programs that support patients, staff and leaders to partner and work together meaningfully toward common goals that are aimed at improving quality and safety. By understanding patient and family caregiver experiences of care, preferences and needs allows us to build compassionate and responsive care at UHN.
