New Guidelines to Reduce Disparities and Provide Patient-Centered Care

The National Quality Forum, an organization dedicated to improving health care quality, has endorsed 45 practices to guide health care systems in providing care that is culturally appropriate and patient-centered. The practices cover such issues as communication, community engagement and workforce training and provide systems with practices they can implement to help reduce persistent disparities and create higher-quality, patient-centered care. The project was funded by The California Endowment and The Commonwealth Fund.
