The New Haven Recommendations on partnering with patients, families and citizens to enhance performance and quality in health promoting hospitals and health services

We are very happy to introduce you to a new HPH policy document which has been developed as part of this year’s HPH conference in New Haven.

The new HPH policy document is called "The New Haven Recommendations on partnering with patients, families and citizens to enhance performance and quality in health promoting hospitals and health services" and it aims to stand up for a clearer position on the essential role of patients, families and citizens within health promoting healthcare. We hope that this document encourages you and your network to more thoroughly consider patients’, families’ and citizens’ specific needs and competences on all levels of healthcare, as we believe it can help to ultimately make the “active and participatory role for patients [families, and citizens]” – as already emphasized in the Budapest Declaration on Health Promoting Hospitals – become a reality.
